 Soybean, refined soy oil futures decline on sluggish demand

26.04.2021 (economictimes.indiatimes.com) - Soybean prices declined more than 3 per cent on Monday as traders trimmed their positions amid weak demand in the spot market.

NCDEX soybean futures for May declined by Rs 239 or 3.29 per cent to Rs 7,032 per 100 kilogram in 81,285 lots.
