FCPO: More Upside To Come, But With Some Retracement Along The Way

Yes, you heard it right, there will be turbulence along this rally. It would not be smooth, nothing is. The benchmark month has been running on choppy direction when it has one. For example, there will be choppy upside couple with swift retracement along the way even when the price action is showing obvious further rally. No magic tricks here as this is expected throughout any medium to long term uptrend. Profit taking will chime in and market could open lower if there is no new high made on Soy oil. For today, the benchmark April might open slightly lower due to slightly weaker closing on overnight Soy oil but overall or medium term trend still seem positive for the moment. Things are looking better on technical side, the April contract price action is suggesting prolong upside rally based on higher low and higher high candle formation in daily chart. Pretty obvious it is a positive price action as the Bullish candle formation happen not on hourly chart, but on daily chart. On the external side, palm oil stockpiles dropped to the lowest level in three months in January as output in the world’s second-biggest producer after Indonesia tumbled to a seven-month low. Inventories fell 2.6 percent to 1.93 million metric tons from a month earlier, while exports lost 9.9 percent to 1.37 million tons, the Malaysian Palm Oil Board said today. The median of estimates in a Bloomberg survey was 1.98 million tons for reserves and 1.35 million tons for exports. Production fell 9.6 percent to 1.51 million tons, in line with the survey and the lowest since June, according to board data. Another hurdles to overcome would be slowing down demand expectation on first quarter of 2014. Buying opportunity arise if the April contract does retrace to 2,596 level today (first pivot support level) while intraday profit taking level should be occur when the price hit 2,638.
