FCPO- Bulls Are Still Controlling The Game

Yes, that is correct, the Bulls are still hanging around in the market even though we saw some profit taking activities towards the closing bell yesterday. Nothing the freak the Long holder out yet as last hour market retrace in an uptrend market is deem normal condition. Short term trader that Longed might take some of the profit out when the market hit 2,500 barrier yesterday, a level that most Long positions holders would take their profit. We should be looking at further market retracement if the benchmark Sept does go down below 2,461 level this week. If that event does not materialize, Long setup is still good to take on. The good side is, the 1-25th Jun vs May 2014 export figure was reported slightly better with 3% rose by ITS surveyor. Palm oil price should be supported by dry weather season too for the moment and steady soy oil price likely help cushion any steep retracement as well. Technically, the benchmark Sept first support trend line will be shown on hourly chart above. Do not get freak out if the Sept contract does fall below this support trend line around 2,478 as we are likely expect it to rebound back to recovery after that. It would be a minor pullback, which is healthy in any uptrend but things might get a bit uglier if the last support line at 2,461 would be taken out as well. Conservative traders might want to place their Long order around 2,465~68, stop loss around 2,455 level and expect 15~20 points gain from your entry level. For this week, pivot support for Sept contract is located around 2,461 while resistance is pegged around 2,501.
