FCPO- No Smooth Sailing To The North

No such thing as easy uptrend or smooth uptrend, the Bulls always faced tough time after it got beaten by Bears for the past three months. Bulls need more than good news to regain their confidence to charge north. For the moment, palm oil futures rallies is not impressive at all. Futures prices manage to recover and breach important resistance level around 2,052 but did not finish well since past Friday. All we can see here, the Bulls are still hesitate to commit Buying at higher level. Once Buyers reach certain high, they will dump or take their profit out of the market. With most traders are staying low and staying cautious on this pending rally, we should too. On the technical side, the benchmark Nov have breached above two important resistance level, which is previous Thursday high around 2,034 and one-week high at 2,052. Unfortunately, market is not convince that breaching these two resistance levels are sufficient enough to bring back more Bulls, and futures prices quickly erase these gain later on the afternoon session. The road to recovery is tough for the moment as Nov need to went up above 2,070 for the next rally to sustain, but this feat is not expected for the time being. On the external side, palm oil fundamental remain weak, export were still negative, stock and productions are still climbing, and we still looking at favorable weather for palm oil trees. Not good at all but these are the information we have, final judgement rest on you, or the trader themselves.
