* Dealers said the market may suffer a short-term setback after its recent strong advance but the mood remained bullish, with exchange stocks falling and producers in Brazil reluctant to sell.

* “The rejection of prices at $2.40 could set the scene for lower prices towards $2.20 in the near term, however, if prices hold above $2.00, momentum will remain on the upside,” Sucden Financial said in a note on market technicals.
