Commodities trader Trafigura posts sharp rise in H1 profit

LONDON, June 11 (Reuters) - Commodities trader Trafigura posted a net profit of $425.7 million for the first half of its financial year that ended in March, up 92 percent from $221.8 million in the same period the year before, the company said on Tuesday.

The Geneva-based firm said the result was principally due to the performance of its crude and oil products trading division.
