Indian soybean and rapeseed futures may open slightly higher on Thursday tailing a recovery in overseas markets, analysts said.
However, progress of monsoon in the country and a likely rise in soybean acreage may drive profit-taking in the later part of the day.
At 9:22 a.m., the benchmark palm oil August contract KPOc3 on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange was up 0.20 percent at 3,447 ringgit per tonne.
