Monday, 1 Jun 2013. The stock market has recovered steadily for the past three session mainly due to oversold conditions recently. Other news to follow.

FKLI- Recovered Due To Better Than Expected Performance On Regional Stock Market

Yes, you read the headlines correctly, today lesson is support and resistance. I can safely tells you that most of the investors knew what are those level and in fact they can even spot it the minute price retrace or pull back up from the high or low. In my years of trading experience, these are the best single tool and the most reliable value for every traders to pay attention to. Price that breach above resistance level will likely force the market to continue rally and price that breach below support level are likely signifying further price weakness. But then again, most of us would like to use other "advance" indicators or technique that would cloud up your trading decision and confuse you. Less and less traders prefer simple and clear cut way to look at the market. Looking at the stock index, most recovery that it made recently might due to positive performance occur on regional market and U.S market.  But I would like to put it in technical term, or should I say in the chart. The first recovery sign was made on 26th Jun with rounded bottom formation, followed by a open gap up session on 27th and 28th Jun. So there you have it, two gaps up in two sessions straight. That is the strong Bullish reversal signal for you to Long on open and watch your account grow. If you have done just that, congratulation. If you did not, we still have plenty of trade set up this week. Stay tune!!

FCPO- No Sign Of Recovery Yet 

Palm oil futures fail to recover on previous Friday after it stop to rallies pass over 2,375 level, the rest was a negative day. Palm oil price is still trap within Bear's paw even though there was some positive figures on export figure.  Price continue to dip down right after it hit 2,375 level on the second session opening, signifying strong Bulls rejection and the market kept on falling till it hit a new four weeks low down to 2,341 level. Technically, palm oil futures for Sept contract continue to record Bearish play which is likely to continue this week. No Bullish reversal sign yet so far and that would make overall outlook even more Bearish for the moment. Other than 2,300 psychological, there is no telling how low this price can go. Forward contracts months are now appear to be traded on "backwardation," where price for palm oil futures is cheaper for further months. Theoretically, we suppose to expect a "Con-tango" reading if there is any Bullish reversal occur this week. Other than that, traders are advise to go Short if there is any attempt for the Sept to rallies close to resistance level. For today, pivot point support for the Sept contract is located around 2,331 while resistance is pegged at 2,370.
