-A +A

SINGAPORE (Feb 2): Palm oil may test a resistance at RM3,089 per tonne, a break above which could lead to a gain to RM3,169.

The resistance is identified as the 100% Fibonacci projection level of an upward wave C from the Oct 6, 2016 low of RM2,538. The projection analysis also reveals a support at RM3,014, around which the correction from the Dec 19 high of RM3,202 may have ended.

The trendline rising from the July 12 low of RM2,186 remains intact, signalling the uptrend from this level has not reversed. A break below RM3,014 could cause a loss to RM2,959.
