FCPO, FKLI Previews and Commentaries 14 May 2013

Palm oil prices tumbled on profit taking after having reached one-month high in early trading hours. Pressure also came as lower domestic inventories outweighed by high stock level at China and India which triggered concerns about limited palm oil demand from these major importers. NYMEX crude posted losses on third consecutive trading day on China’s oil demand which fell to 8-month low in April as industrial output expanded at slower pace than expectation.

Prices received additional pressure after robust US retail sales sent dollar higher as it would bring negative impact to commodity prices. Investor now await cue from API oil data due later today and EIA data on Wednesday. Despite the poor weekly soybean exports, US soyoil ended higher on strong cash market and spillover effect from short covering rally in corn.

Expect CPO futures to trade higher as palm oil trading at discount to other edible oils amid speculation over a possible drawdown in inventories in Indonesia, the world’s largest palm oil producer, to a 6-month low as consumption increased.

Overnight Leads
Soybean futures on the Chicago Board of Trade rose on Monday on firm cash markets and
tightening U.S. supplies, lifting the spot contract to a six-month high, traders said.

Futures settled at 2310, down 9 points. A black candle was formed as prices opened higher but upward movement was not sustainable, as stronger sellers have taken control of the market for the day. However, prices remained position above 20 day moving averages and MACD on
its bullish journey, therefore bulls remain in firm on technical grounds. As such support and resistance can be pegged at 2300 and 2335 respectively.

Technical indicators:
 MACD= Positive, ADX= Neutral,

Intraday technical support & resistance for 14/05/2013:
 1st support 2,300; 2nd support 2,270
 1st resistance 2,335; 2nd resistance 2,380-2400

Trade may long with a stop on or below 2270.
