SINGAPORE (Aug 17): Palm oil may rise into a range of RM2,269-2,277 per tonne, as it has cleared a resistance at RM2,224.
The resistance was provided by the 23.6% retracement on the downtrend from RM2,498 to RM2,140. The bounce from RM2,140 seems to have extended towards the next resistance at RM2,277.
The contract is riding on a wave C from RM2,192. This wave is capable of travelling into the range of RM2,269-2,317, which is formed by its 61.8% and 100% projection levels.
Following the gains from the Aug 17 low of RM2,236, a double-bottom forming around RM2,140 holds its predication value again. It suggests a target around RM2,317.
A correction may be limited to RM2,224, now a support.
