FCPO- Bulls Is Only Showing Its Horn.

Yes, that is right, the bull is only showing its horn, just a glimpse, nothing more and you are telling me it is going up for sure ? Small market talk aside, lets look at the fundamental news announced by MPOB and cargo surveyors.  Palm oil output in Malaysia, the world’s second-largest producer, climbed to the highest level in more than year in October, exceeding analysts’ expectations and boosting stockpiles to a six-month high. Production gained 3.1 percent to 1.97 million metric tons from a month earlier, the highest since September 2012, the Malaysian Palm Oil Board said today. Inventories rose 3.5 percent to 1.85 million tons, the largest since April, while exports gained 3.3 percent to 1.66 million tons. That compares with the median estimates of 1.87 million tons for output, 1.84 million tons for reserves and 1.6 million tons for exports in a Bloomberg survey published last week. Production of the tropical oil, used in everything from candy to bio-fuel, is typically highest from July to October because of growing cycles. Output may drop  in November. Shipments from Malaysia fell 13 percent to 472,321 tons in the first 10 days of November from the same period last month, surveyor Intertek said yesterday.
If the fundamental should tell you something it should be Bearish, at least for the month of Nov unless we are looking at improve export figures in the upcoming 15th Nov from cargo surveyors. Technically, we are looking at the first sign of recovery judging on hourly chart shown above. The ability for the market to rebound above 2,500 was an early sign that the Bears are re-acting to the psychological support level but it would be all different scenario if the benchmark Jan manage to breach below 2,500 this week. In other words, more upside confirmation can be obtain if the Jan contract went up above 2,552 level this month. For today, pivot support for the benchmark Jan is located around 2,517 followed by 2,506 while resistance is pegged at 2,543.
