Speculators stayed away from the market for while hoping reduction in price as supply is expected to grow with in a short span of time. Another reason for the poor trading activity was slump in crude oil price.

Asian naphtha prices opened with a soft note on Friday. Prices for open spec naphtha cargoes on a CFR Japan basis slumped $32.25 per mt when markets opened in Asia, as Western crude benchmarks fell $4-$5 per barrel.

Contracts inked for the second half of November were pegged in the range of $609.00-$612.00 per ton CFR (cost and freight) Japan. For the first half of December at prices stood at $623.00-$626.00 per ton CFR Japan and second half December at $637.00-$640.0 per ton CFR Japan.
