"- Markets made a tepid reponse to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's after-hours speech late Wednesday, the second part of the day's closely followed Fed missives.

This was 8.5 up from the low and 1.5 off the high. August Soybean Oil finished down 0.49 at 46.53, 0.77 off the high and 0.08 up from the low. August soybeans spent much of the day in positive territory and the new crop contracts traded both sides of the unchanged following a slightly bearish USDA report. The USDA pegged the 2013/14 ending stocks at 295 million bushels, up from the June estimate of 265, and up from trade estimates at 263 million. Planted acreage inched higher to 77.7 million acres and the national average yield held steady at 44.5 bushels per acre.

FKLI- Jack Up In Record Time

I would not comment further about yesterday brief spike up that brought the July contract from opening gap up to 1,776 straight to 1,824 level within five minutes or less. There are folks in the community said that this is all due to what happen externally, the U.S market. Personally, in my point of view, there are too many variables that can lead to this impulsive Buying and Bernanke speech or any statement made by Federal Reserve would be just part of the reasons. It could be the good Bernanke speech or motion that would not halt their assets buying programme any time soon unless there is real growth recorded at America. My closest guess would be those foreign institutional players would frantically wish to get in the market as soon as possible when it open ? Back to the market, we have all been taken for a ride yesterday when the rally to five weeks high, does not sustain and the market fall back to close at 1,788 level. It is undeniable that the July contract has breached above its 1,800 immediate resistance level yesterday, even it is a brief break out but the Bulls has claimed to win the battle again. For more sustainable rally, it is crucial for the cash market to follow behind and breach above 1,800 as well.

FCPO- Selling Pressure Mounting

Soybean inventories in the U.S., the world’s biggest shipper, will more than double before next season’s harvest after farmers planted record acreage and rain boosted yields following last year’s drought-damaged harvest, government officials said. This would not serve as a good news for CPO market as the Soy oil August contract start to dip more than 2% so far. Soy oil for August contract was traded at 46.51 cents per pound, a dropped about 1.5% as the time of writing. Let me just give you straight up the game plan for today, Sell on opening if the benchmark Sept open below previous sessions low at 2,363. Traders can expect at least 10 points dropped from the opening unless it open too low around 2,340 level measure from previous closing value 2,371 with 31~32 ATR. But what if the market open higher or just slightly lower and still above 2,363 ? Solid Sell if the market open higher and solid Sell if the market open slightly lower than yesterday closing. So there you have it, the trade ideas for today, wish you best of luck and lets get to trade.
