FCPO- Bulls Are Mauled And Left To Die. 

Yesterday might be the worse news ever break on FCPO Long holders as most of them would unwind or closed off their positions due to significant Bearish price performance. Continuing what might have happen for the past one week, the Bears were dominating the market yesterday, leaving no casualties behind. Most Bulls were definitely slaughtered and those Long covering activities would have just worsen yesterday sell-off. As a result, at close the benchmark Feb dipped about RM86 to four weeks low at 2,998. Both technical and fundamental aspect suggest that palm oil prices are likely continue to slump as there is no significant positive news to support price from falling. Demand and Soya oil performance (prices) were still weak. For benchmark Feb, the Bearish Marubozu candle formed on daily chart plus a small gap down yesterday clearly justify how the market has turn from bullish to Bearish. In other words, the impending recovery that mentioned on previous week post has been eliminated, there is less chance for the market to reverse into Bullish trend anymore, at least not so soon. For safer entry, traders can opt to go Short if the price approach resistance point. For today, support is likely located around 2,949 while resistance is pegged at 3,042.
