FCPO- Bulls Might Go Off For A Short While

Palm oil futures closed lower yesterday after the benhcmark May clocked the highest reading at 2,777 since Sept 2012. Yes, no kidding that is the high achieve yesterday and if you are not aware, this would be potent uptrend in long term after the benchmark month has breached above most of the major resistance level starting from 2,600 all the way to 2,700, steadily. Now, we might facing what we call a retracement period judging on yesterday closed value. This situation is not definitely a good news for new Long holder who went in late, certainly they (the Long holder) have their limitation how bad the market can go against them before they would cut their losses and pull the plug out. Fortunately, a sign is still a sign until it is happen. There is no confirmation for the market to retrace substantially from this point other than the lower closing yesterday. But with all things set aside, palm oil price should be susceptible for further retracement if previous yesterday low is violated later today. If that event materialized, the next major support would be located around 2,700 this week. For the external factor, independent cargo surveyors ITS and SGS will be announcing their palm oil export data later this afternoon. Lower opening session is expected this morning judging on lower overnight closing on Soy oil.
