The new crop market lost to old crop as basis continues to charge higher in processor markets. Traders noted that profit taking was active ahead of the weekend as traders see planting and conditions reports improving on Monday vs. week ago levels. The Midwest remains mostly warm and dry heading into the weekend with the exception of showers that are moving through areas of MN, northeast IA, southern WI, and northern IL. This could delay planting for some. The warmer temperatures should be perfect for crops that have been planted in the last 2 weeks. Options expiration for the July contract was today so much of the markets focus was on if the July contract will settle near the 1500 strike where a significant amount of open interest was held. Outside markets saw follow through weakness from yesterday with the US Dollar surging to the upside and US equities came off their overnight highs and traded lower for most of the session."

FCPO- Major Correction Ahead. 

Palm oil futures are reversing its current role from Bullish to Bearish gradually on medium term. The only barrier that set the Bulls and Bears apart would be the psychological support around 2,400 level. Bears will emerge victorious if the benchmark Sept manage to breach below that psychological support this week. The speed that accompanied with this weakness are swifter as the market has gapped down twice from previous Thursday and Friday. And things got worse when the market refuse to recover after the gapped down, and no attempt by the Bulls to try and push the price either. Bears have won easily, pushing down the price across the board. For the record, the Sept contract has weaken 2.8% from the 2,491 peak last week. 2.8% correction might not be a game changer for the Bears to declare long term victory over Bulls, but it is a stern warning that the market is losing its upside momentum. In fact, current positive momentum has halt when the market gapped down on previous Friday and never had the change to fill up the gap within 2,460~2,438. Watch out for any gap down again today as the Soy oil continue to create new low as the time of writing this morning.
