FCPO- Weakness On Soy Oil Likely Curb Further Rallies

The benchmark Oct had a good rallies when the price fell close to seven months low last week, attracting bargain hunter to step in and Long the market. But unfortunately, this week rallies might not sustain that long as overnight weaker than expected closing value on Soy oil is likely curbing price to go up further today. Long term outlook on Soy oil and palm oil futures remain negative for the moment and traders are reminded that previous recover attempt was meant to be short lived temporary rebound. Demand and stockpiles will remain the main headlines for the market to move as sluggish export and increase stockpiles concern would serve as main hurdles for the market to recover further this month. Technically, short term outlook is pointing at positive direction as recent breach above 2,290 level signifies strong Buyers commitment in the market. Unfortunately, market always move in wave form and today we are likely to expect some retracement if the market open lower than 2,261 level. Short positions are likely making the profit tape today as weaker than expected dive in Soy oil would spur price drop in palm oil futures soon.
