Palm Oil May Advance 11% in ‘Relief Rally’: Technical Analysis
Oct 13, 2011: Palm oil, the most used cooking oil, may advance 11 percent in the next two months as the relative strength index and stochastic indicators signal a rally, according to technical analysis by TransGraph Consulting Pvt.

The most active futures contract on the Malaysia Derivative Exchange may climb to 3,150 ringgit ($1,005) a metric ton, Ravi Chandra, vice president at Hyderabad, India-based TransGraph, said in an interview today. Palm oil last traded above that level in July.

Futures prices are consistently lowering since the February high of 3,967 ringgit and have recently broken below the long term rising trend line at 2,950 ringgit,” Chandra said. “This indicates the existing bearish trend is likely to stretch further in the long term. Prices could turn lower and likely to resume the overall bearish trend towards 2,400 ringgit in more than six months after the relief rally. More....(bloomberg)
