KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 22 -- The Malaysian rubber market extended yesterday’s losses to end lower today in tandem with weaker regional rubber futures markets and declining oil prices, said a dealer.

He said the market sentiment also had turned negative as investors became cautious following news of the spread of coronavirus from China and its potential impact on the global economy.
