FCPO- Long holders, Bets Are Officially Off. 

You heard me right. Long bets are off, market has breach below the previous low / support level at 2,426. The continues falling price on palm oil signified that the Sellers are becoming aggressive day by day. Yesterday gapped down was part of the earmark of Bears gaining control and they done it by breaching below the support level. Not to aggravate the current outlook for palm oil futures, recent downfall for the benchmark Jun has shut off most of the chances market to recover. You can forget about Shorting when the market rally for this near term because there would be another gap down today on opening session judging on weaker closing value on overnight Soy oil. The most actively traded May contract went down about 0.82 cents to 50 cents per pound due to Bearish USDA report. Planting area increased and stocks hike up on Soy bean, forcing the price to came down significantly. It will be a challenging period for the palm oil futures to recover as demand is deteriorating and stocks level refuse to go down substantially. Technically, the benchmark Jun has turned Bearish based on lower low and lower high candle formation formed on hourly chart above. Both short term and medium term technical perspective have now become Bearish. Today, Traders can opt to go Short if there some recovery made on the opening bell after the gap down. Short if the market recovered about 12 points from the opening value and place about 10 points Buy Stop above that entry. You can expect about 20 points possible profit at the end of the sessions or just trail it with 12 points apart. Pivot support for Jun contract is located around 2,397 followed by 2,384 while resistance is pegged at 2,424 level.
