FCPO- There Is No Telling Where Is The Next Low. 

I might sound dramatic but dramatic is what you need if you wish to achieve success in any field. Palm oil gets the hammer down not only yesterday but for the past six months this year. Try to flip a daily chart and you will instantly see what is going on, with that in mind yesterday sell-off was actually expected. Unfortunately, only few percentage of traders would expect that to happen, traders who actually sticking to their plan and execute it. Majority does not see this down fall, to make things worse, most are going against it. To go Long in a very low or very cheap priced instrument in futures is suicide attempt because there is no telling where is the next low the price would stop dropping, none to tell whatsoever. Trend trader might having the best blast this time around, and we all know this moment is hard to come around. Both fundamental and technical reading are still suggesting Bearish market. With July palm oil output increase about 6.1%, export down 2.3% and stocks was up 1.5%, it is clear picture that palm oil direction is down. Technically, yesterday seventy points sell down might signifies that the Bearish momentum is still strong and still have more juices to go down. This weakness might just be the beginning, there is no telling where is the next support. For intraday traders, beware if you are going Long on market rebound because it will be a Short live rally. Most recovery is likely turn out to be chance to go Short. To do that, pay attention to daily pivot resistance level.
