SINGAPORE (Feb 19): Palm oil may rise to RM2,316 per tonne, as it has broken a resistance at RM2,285.
The resistances is identified as the 14.6% retracement on the uptrend from RM1,940 to RM2,344. The next resistance will be at RM2,316, a break above which could lead to a gain to RM2,344.
A fall below RM2,274 could signal the break above RM2,285 was false, and the target at RM2,316 will be aborted.
A projection analysis on the daily chart reveals a similar target at RM2,321, the 76.4% level of a downward wave (C), following a failure of the contract to break the support at RM2,246.
