ZARUL EFFENDI RAZALI

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 22 -- The Malaysian rubber erased from yesterday's mixed to close lower today, dragged down by weaker advice from the regional rubber futures markets owing to persistent worries over the status of the US-China trade deal, a dealer said.

He said the decline was also influenced by falling oil prices, coupled with stronger ringgit against the US dollar.
