India Soybean, mustard down; CPO, soyoil rise marginally.

Futures contracts of components in the edible oil basket traded mixed, with refined soyoil and crude palm oil contracts rising marginally on domestic exchanges. Futures contracts of soybean ended nearly 1% lower on the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange, taking cues from the spot markets where tepid demand from bulk buyers kept prices subdued. Prices of the oilseed had risen in the past sessions on expectations of a hike in import duty on edible oils, which weighed on demand. On the NCDEX, soyoil contracts were up 0.2% from the previous close. Mustard contracts on the NCDEX fell by 0.6% tracking spot markets and due to lacklustre demand from oil millers and mustard meal exporters.
