-A +A

SINGAPORE (March 4): Palm oil may extend its bounce into a zone of RM2,214-2,237 per tonne, as suggested by a projection analysis.

The bounce was caused by a support at RM2,117, the 200% projection level of a downward wave c. A falling channel suggests a target around RM2,214.

The bounce looks too sharp too sustain. It may end around RM2,214 or RM2,237. On the daily chart, a support at RM2,144 helped trigger the current bounce, which may be limited to RM2,246, the 86.4% projection level of a downward wave (C).

Support is at RM2,177, a break below which could cause a loss into a range of RM2,117-2,154.
