Select edible oil prices fell up to Rs 50 per quintal on the wholesale oils and oilseeds market today largely in tandem with a weakening trend overseas on record inventories and fall in demand from millers and retailers.
Marketmen said trading sentiments dampened after on reports of record stockpiles of palm oil in Malaysia, world's second largest producer.
Meanwhile, palm oil for February delivery fell by 0.40 per cent to 2,288 ringgit (USD 749) per tonne on the Malaysian Derivatives Exchange.
