Palm oil looks shaky, due for deep correction

SINGAPORE: Palm oil looks shaky around a previous high of 5,220 ringgit per tonne. It may test a support at 5,174 ringgit.

The contract has broken a former resistance at 5,174 ringgit, the 100% projection level of an uptrend from 4,672 ringgit. It is supposed to extend gains to 5,366 ringgit.

Palm oil could have been riding on a wave 5, the fifth wave of a five-wave cycle from 4,291 ringgit.

It is generally hard to pinpoint the peak of the fifth wave.

The current part of this wave is being shaped into a small rising wedge, which is yet to be confirmed. However, it looks like a top pattern, to be followed by a deep drop.

A break below 5,174 ringgit could indicate a completion of this wave. A further drop below 5,106 ringgit could confirm the completion.

On the daily chart, even though the contract has broken a strong resistance at 5,170 ringgit, the 261.8% projection level of an upward wave (C) from 1,939 ringgit.

It is doubtful whether there will be a further gain, as the rise from the Dec. 16, 2021 low of 4,245 ringgit looks too linear to sustain.

A decent correction has been missing, except the one on Wednesday which was due to a contract switch.

The former high of 5,220 ringgit may trigger such a correction.

A close below 5,170 ringgit on Friday could suggest that the break above this level was false. A bearish target of 5,024 ringgit will be established.
