Tueday, 20th Jan 2015. Palm oil futures has its run down from the peak 2,394 to 2,298 previous Friday and this new weekly break out might not sustain. Other news to follow.

"- U.S. stocks ended the roller-coaster week on a high note, as a rally in oil prices and calmer currency markets provided a rare boost of confidence. The main benchmarks broke a five-day losing streak, but still ended the fourth-straight week with losses.

Prior to Monday’s heavy loss, the index was up 4.4% for the month to date, extending gains after finishing 2014 with a sharp 53% advance. The plunge in mainland China helped to push Hong Kong’s benchmark Hang Seng Index HSI, -1.51%  down 1.5%, with the Hang Seng China Enterprises — which tracks Hong Kong-listed mainland Chinese companies — off 5%."

"-Crude-oil futures pushed lower in volatile action during European trading hours on Monday, as another investment bank slashed its price forecasts and investors braced for another week of potential market upheaval. On the New York Mercantile Exchange, light, sweet crude futures for delivery in February CLG5, +2.92%  traded at $48.17 a barrel in recent trade, down 63 cents, or 1.3%, in the Globex electronic session. March Brent crude LCOH5, +0.18%  on London’s ICE Futures exchange fell 52 cents, or 1%, to $49.63 a barrel."

FCPO- No Straight Line Here

Market is full of surprises, at least for my case. There is no telling whenever the trend is coming or it doesn't at all. I am talking about the recent weekly upside break out on FCPO April which made the price break above from previous high at 2,384 level. According to most text book or trend trading manual so to speak, most of these medium term to long term trader would to place their bet if the price manage to break out from certain high. I believe previous Friday break out was at least one week high and those who was targeted to go Long on the next break out would likely went in to Long position. Unfortunately, these types of trade only bring out small percentage of winning ratio. Most of these kind of break out does not rally to the next significant resistance level, example for this case, 2,400 point. What we have now is a heavy profit taking, retracement or whatever you can call it. The fact is, all of the gain made last week was wipe out in a few hours when the April contract strike down to 2,298. It is futile to find out what happen in the background of that drop because market is always evolve and changing. What we can do now, would be charter our next direction, do we bet all out on this retracement or do we wait for further rally to go Long / Short. The best thing to do now will be setting your position to Long at the previous Friday low around 2,300, placing tight stop loss and wait for the market to rally the next hour and eventually hitting the previous high if lucky. If unlucky, we might just cutting loss on a small margin. Vice versa if the market is going up, resistance is pegged around 2,348 for the moment. Set your Short position around that resistance area, place tight stop when your Short position filled and wait. Just wait  until your stop hit or hold overnight if the market is favoring you. That was part of the game plan if you wish to trade in this temporary ranging market.
