KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 29 -- The Malaysian rubber market improved slightly from yesterday's loss to end mixed on the back of buying interest for the commodity.

A dealer said the moderate demand was spurred by optimism over an interim trade deal between the United States and China, amid bearish regional rubber futures markets and oil prices.

He said oil prices remained low on Friday amid weak volume ahead of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) meeting next week. 

OPEC will meet at its headquarters in Vienna on Dec 5-6 followed by talks with Russia and other producers, known as OPEC+.
