Palm oil may test resistance at 2,963 ringgit

Reuters SINGAPORE | Updated on October 23, 2020 Published on October 23, 2020

Palm oil may test a resistance at 2,963 ringgit per tonne, a break above which could lead to a gain into 2,994-3,023 ringgit.

The resistance is identified as the 14.6% projection level of a downward wave C from 3,023 ringgit. This wave looks too brief to complete. It may consist of three smaller waves.

The current wave b is unfolding towards 2,963 ringgit or 2,994 ringgit, to be then reversed by a downward wave c. A fall below 2,905 ringgit may signal the progress of the wave c.

On the daily chart, a retracement analysis on the uptrend from 2,522 ringgit to 3,104 ringgit reveals a target of 3,022 ringigt, the 7% level, as the contract has broken the resistance at 2,934 ringgit.

The break may prove to be false, if the contract opens lower on Friday and remains below 2,934 ringgit.
