PALM OIL MAY BOUNCE TOWARDS RM2,199
SINGAPORE (Oct 26): Palm oil may bounce towards a resistance at RM2,199 per tonne, as it has found a support at RM2,161.
The support is provided by the 14.6% projection level of an upward wave C from the Sept 20 low of RM2,137. Even though this wave has completed, the various projection levels still work effectively.
Making the support at RM2,161 stronger is another similar one established by a rising trendline. Together, these two supports could at least hold the fall for a while. A break below RM2,161 could cause a loss to RM2,137.
Eventually, the contract could fall below RM2,137, as a projection analysis on the daily chart shows that it is going to retest a support at RM2,144, the 100% projection level of a bigger wave (C).
This wave has been unfolding within a falling channel, which remains intact and suggests a target around RM1,967.
