FCPO Market Outlook 14 Sept 2016





FCPO Nov had to dive down yesterday as Soy oil price was traded lower than expected overnight. The soy oil for Sept was traded 0.81 cents lower, that might explain why FCPO Nov had to open gap down about 20 points from 2,588 to 2,568 level at yesterday morning session. A strong fundamental and perhaps some slight recovery on soy oil in the afternoon might help palm oil futures to recover some ground. The bad news was palm oil futures has topped out, it is not a sure thing that the price would retrace further but I am quite sure that the Bulls are not that aggressive for the time being. There was at least twice failed attempt for the Bulls to break major resistance level at 2,668 level. Palm oil futures is likely going into a sideways price action but nothing serious such as forming a Bearish candle formation yet for long term perspective. Traders are advise to pay attention to current medium term sideways price action as the Nov contract has formed a lower high and lower low candles. This chart formation somehow signify price is likely to be weak until we see a Bullish candle formation such as a higher low in hourly chart. I still confidence that candle formation is the most solid tool, a simple and effective indication to read market direction at any time frame. To look at it objectively, a lower high / lower peak would mean Bull are trying to rally but with less strength to topple previous high. A lower low would mean Bears gain the upper hand because they manage to stomp the price lower than its previous low or major support level at most cases. No doubt palm oil futures sentiment is still enjoying some positive sentiments but do not forget that price in the futures are based on cumulative expectation in the near future or three months ahead for Nov contract. The Bulls we know are likely taking its dance nice and slow. I do not think the Buyers are that hungry or dare to commit to accumulate Long position at this level. Perhaps the market need to fall further or most of us is just awaiting the up-coming important announcement by the Feds from 20th ~ 21st Sept 2016. Do take note that the new benchmark contract will be shift to Dec16 when market re-open for trading on next Monday. Bursa will be closed on this coming Friday for Malaysia day holiday. For today, palm oil futures is likely open higher with recent soy oil recovery. Soy oil for Sept manage to go up about 0.11 cents to 31.62 cents as the time of writing. Range for Nov today is likely 2,550 ~ 2,590.

FCPO Commentary 24 Aug 2016






If you came down and record price action, previous high or immediate resistance level is a reliable area to take a calculated Short setup with nice risk and reward with it. The ratio if you are able to Short around 2,620 level, chances are you are likely risking somewhere 10 points and target a 20 points return. It is a nice setup to follow but how many of us dare to execute this setup when the price approach that immediate high. Again, we had only our mind and personality to blame, but it is okay as long as you take note and learn some lesson from that setup. Usually, taking an opposite position when the market is hitting the immediate high or go Long when the price is coming to immediate low are generic strategies to use in ranging market. Yes, I still believe palm oil futures is still ranging, maybe more to positive side but I am not putting my money overnight. Intraday positions should stay intraday the most, moving an intraday positions overnight is death wish, especially when you are holding a losing positions. Another thing to take note would be, try not to over-trade, a minimal margin for each lot should be at least RM6,000 even for an intraday position. I know all of us wish to be right at the maximum load and make tons of money, but know this, no one has ever got that lucky in my record yet. All of those who over-trade usually end up watching their equity vaporize so quickly they refuse to believe it. Trading using the right allocated fund lets you feel the market with better clarity, there is no rush to get good in this business but everyone just want to be success in the fastest time possible. We need time to improve, even the best in this business still have their bad day to begin with. Palm oil futures for Nov is likely trap within the range shown on hourly chart above, with a little bias to the upside. Most of the sentiment so far remain Bullish with palm oil supplies seems going lower due to improving demand. Like it or not, palm oil futures is likely tracking soy oil futures positive momentum for some extended of time. Today, range for Nov contract is likely open lower on soy oil recent retracement. The Bulls on soy oil is starting to take a breather, heading down about 0.35 cents to 33.60 cents this morning, but this may turn out to be a temporary condition. Overall chart reading on daily time frame still suggest soy oil Dec is still travelling on Bullish momentum. Range for Nov today is likely moving within 2,570 ~ 2,620.

FCPO 22th July 2016





Palm oil futures for Oct contract shows the first sign of pause upside on previous Friday. The Oct price was trying to regain positive momentum in the morning session but most of the Selling pressure is just too overwhelm when the market resume on afternoon session. At close the Oct was traded at least 1.5% lower plus price close at the low of the day, this mark Sellers were more dominant at the end of session. The other pointer that force the market into negative territory would be the inability for the price to float above 2,329 level after it resume after lunch break, that was the immediate support I mentioned on previous Thursday if anything should goes wrong from here. With Oct contract recent weak closing, we might be looking at the fist sign of further weakness or we can call it a retracement curve. I said  curve because it still an early indication, remember that market does not move in a straight line, every recovery will have its retracement and vice versa for a downtrend. Nonetheless, we will have higher likelihood for the FCPO price to retrace further if it end lower for today session. To re-iterate, there is not much changes on the fundamental side, the only positive development will be marginal increase in export numbers, that it. Current weather is still conducive for palm oil production to continue to thrive. With all said and done, previous week upside momentum is likely to survive if the Oct contract does not drop below 2,300 area. And if it does, we are going to have a nasty retracement all the way to 2,256 level, maybe not in a straight line but probably a slow descend. I am still Bearish on the longer term perspective due to consistent active production season for the past two months when the price start Selling-off. But now, we have to be prepare whether the Bulls are giving up the fight or it is just a mild retracement for the time being. For today, palm oil futures for Oct contract is likely open lower on soy oil recent weakness. The soy oil for Sept contract was traded down about 0.28 cents lower to 30.44 cents this morning. The range for Oct contract is likely moving within 2,170~2,220.

FCPO Outlook 15th July 2016




Palm oil futures managed to recover on last Friday amid some slight rally on soy oil. The soy oil for Aug contract was traded slightly lower about 0.07 cents to 30.76 cents this morning. The active production, stockpiles climbed plus export dwindling concern on palm oil futures are still the main reason why market dropped substantially for the 8 weeks straight. But now, the price action on new benchmark Oct is suggesting a short term recovery. The Bullish candle that pierce above immediate resistance at 2,280. What concern me is the inability for the benchmark month to maintain its gain above 2,280 level. On previous Friday, the Sept contract settled at 2,279 level. Nonetheless, the first sign of recovery as mentioned above the chart is valid, there is a strong Buying interest on last Friday that lead us to believe that palm oil futures is likely to made its way upwards. This is also known as a recovery curve, and if you recall a recovery curve is an average probability for the market to recover substantially after a market has been sold-off for some time. With all that said and done, do not get your hopes high because any recovery curve can fail easily when there is a Bearish news emerge. In order to qualify for sustainable recovery, the first resistance for the Oct contract to overcome would be 2,320 level. If that did not happen, we are likely moving back into a ranging market with 2,185 will serve as support level for the time being. Apart from marginal rise in export number for 1-15th July vs June reported by SGS and slight reduction in export tax, stockpiles and production are still on the upside. For today, range for Oct contract is likely 2,240 ~ 2,280.

30 June 2016 FCPO Email Commentary Sample


FCPO 29 June 2016 Daily Chart
Traders can make any mistake at any given time, but it is the repeatable mistake that taking toll out of your equity. Imagine that you have enough psychic power to not let the same mistake happen because in the past you have learnt your lesson, would you be a better trader ? Eventually that is all it takes to be better, just do not let the same mistake happen again. Palm oil futures made a new three months low yesterday with the Sept breaking major Support at 2,350 level and Selling all the way down to 2,316 level. Market ended at the day low at 2,317 for Sept contract. The price did not even bother to recover after breaking the 2,350 Support level, it just tumble all the way down. I made some wrong expectation on how the Sept contract should re-act when it break below the Support level, it seems the Bears are still dominant after that major Support shattered. Palm oil futures have been Selling off continuously since three months ago even though Ringgit were very weak few weeks ago, there was no noticeable recovery on that particular time. For today, the Sept contract is likely going down for another round judging on weaker soy oil price. The soy oil price for Aug was traded 0.14 cents down to 30.99 cents this morning. It is very dangerous to any traders if he/she would not believe that market can go down consecutively for substantial numbers of days and extremely oversold in any time frame, taking any counter trend position such as going Long in a falling market just because it is cheap is a fatal mistake. Futures market do not have any limitation on how it should fall, if it is falling, it will be far cheaper for the few days. Instead of spending your ammunition and trying to Buy at the low, why not wait for some sign of promising recovery, then going Long from there, the odds would be that bad at all. Of course you would not getting to Buy at the low, but how many of us can Buy anything when the price is the lowest ? With most of the variables remain constant, the Sept contract range for today is likely moving within 2,280 ~ 2,330 level.

The Big Picture 21 Apr 2016

FCPO Overall Outlook 21 Apr 2016



Talking about bigger picture, here is how the FCPO daily looks like after it has "break out" from the base or from the curve. The price does gap up along with soy oil rally yesterday but stop and retrace on the afternoon session. It is not a straight line rally as you see, half of the gain was wiped out in the afternoon session yesterday. It is even worse to catch any good trade on intraday setup because price on move in 5 to 15 points range and most of the immediate low does not go down all the way, it rebounded and took my stop loss, at least for my case. Back to market outlook, palm oil futures is likely open unchaged today judging from soy oil lack of price movement this morning. The Soy oil for May contract was traded 0.05 cents lower to 34.70 cents as the time of writing. We should see a little weak opening for July contract if the May contract soy oil went down more than 0.10 cents later. Weather play for palm oil is still positive and I do not see any changes for the time being, at least for this month. Maybe we would see some hesitation toward previous major around 2,793 level where price would retrace when it approach that area but other than that, there is no major concern for July contract to continue rally. Pay attention to export number and Ringgit changes, market is likely taking some hint before changing any course of direction. For today, range for July contract likely 2700~2740.

FCPO Setup 12 April 2016

What have you been missing so far.



"Wonder what is the U shape curve above or below a certain candle above this daily chart ? That is called a turning points for current June contract. Notice that the market usually always go into a ranging period or a sideways period before continue to head into that direction. Example the first curve above on Feb 12th to Feb 19th before heading down to for some retracement. Another curve would be located below the candles from March 2nd to 4th, see how the price rebounded a few times and gradually rally from that low ? The final curve would be situated above few candles happen on 29 March to 5th April before the June contract came down for some major retracement. My point is, there is no base for us to expect any curve yet, in another words, there is still no sign of any price recovery. What we can expect now would be getting Short when the price recover, the higher the better. Palm oil futures is likely open higher with soy oil recent surge. The soy oil for May contract suddenly surge about 0.27 cents from 33.87 cents yesterday evening to 34.14 cents this morning. While most of the fundamental is gradually shifting to neutral, we are still accessing the impact of yesterday MPOB palm oil increase production report. Malaysia is still manage to record higher production even with this hotter weather while Indonesia is having production cut everywhere up to 60% and could last until this June 2016. Crude oil hit $41 per barrel overnight, maybe that would serve some sort of barometer to overall commodities prices around the world. For today, range for June contract likely 2645~2690."
