KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 20): Malaysian palm oil futures rose for the first time in five sessions on Wednesday, supported by rising export demand and strength in soyoil on the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT).

The benchmark palm oil contract for December delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange rose 0.1% to RM2,770 a tonne at the end of the trading day.

The rise followed four straight declines as palm tracked weakness in related edible oils and was also pulled lower by bearish price outlooks at an industry conference last week.

Traded volumes stood at 64,331 lots of 25 tonnes each on Wednesday evening.

"The market is higher on soyoil closing (higher) last night," said one Kuala Lumpur-based futures trader, referring to CBOT soyoil.

He added that strong export data from cargo surveyors was also supporting the market, but the gains are likely to be short-lived because expectations of stronger exports are already priced in.

"The market needs to break above RM2,800 to continue its bullish rally. Otherwise it will come lower to RM2,740-2,750," the trader said.

Palm oil shipments from Malaysia, the world's second-largest producer behind Indonesia, in the first 20 days of September rose 25.4% from the same period the previous month, data from Intertek Testing Services showed on Wednesday.

Another cargo surveyor, Societe Generale de Surveillance reported on Wednesday evening a 26.8% rise in shipments for the same period.

Demand for the tropical oil is seen rising throughout September as key buyers China and India stock up ahead of the mid-autumn festival and Diwali respectively, which lead to higher usage of palm oil.

Palm oil prices are also affected by movements in other edible oils including soy.

The October soybean oil contract on the Chicago Board of Trade posted its first gain in a week on Tuesday but was last down 0.1% on Wednesday.

The January soybean oil contract on the Dalian Commodity Exchange dipped by 0.3%, while the January palm olein contract fell 0.6%.

Palm sheds early gains tracking overnight losses in rival soyoil

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 27): Malaysian palm oil futures erased earlier gains to edge lower on Wednesday, tracking overnight losses in soyoil on the Chicago Board of Trade.

Losses in the ringgit, the currency of trade for palm oil, might curb declines in the tropical oil, said a trader.

The benchmark palm oil contract for December delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange fell 0.4% to 2,739 ringgit (US$649.44) a tonne at the midday break,
on track for its third drop in four sessions.

Traded volumes stood at 22,474 lots of 25 tonnes each at noon.

Palm oil prices fell on Wednesday morning tracking overnight losses in CBOT soyoil, said two futures traders from Kuala Lumpur.

"Weakness in the local currency could, however, cushion the selling pressure," added one trader.

A weaker ringgit usually makes palm oil cheaper for holders of foreign currencies. Earlier in the session, the currency slipped as much as 0.3% to 4.2190 per dollar, its weakest in near three weeks.

The December soybean oil contract on the Chicago Board of Trade gained up to 0.4%, after closing down 1.6% in its previous session on better-than-expected yield
reports from the U.S. midwest.

Palm oil prices slided after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said it was seeking comments on a proposal to reduce biodiesel blending requirements into the domestic fuel supply. Soyoil is the primary feedstock for soy-based biodiesel fuel.

In other related oils, the January soybean oil contract on the Dalian Commodity Exchange fell as much as 0.6%, while the January palm olein contract climbed up to 0.5%.

Palm oil prices are impacted by the performances of related edible oils, as they compete for a share of the global vegetable oils market.

Palm oil may retest 2,905 ringgit in three months

September 27, 2017 14:33 pm MYT

-A+A
SINGAPORE (Sept 27): Palm oil may retrace into a range of 2,537-2,606 ringgit per tonne, before retesting a resistance at 2,905 ringgit in three months, as suggested by its wave pattern and a Fibonacci retracement analysis.

The contract is riding on a wave C, the third wave of a presumed three-wave cycle from the Aug 25, 2015 low of 1,863 ringgit. This wave is capable of eventually travelling to Dec 16, 2016 high of 3,202 ringgit, the peak of the wave A.

The wave B reversed roughly 61.8% of the wave A, as revealed by a Fibonacci retracement analysis on the rise from 1,863 ringgit to 3,202 ringgit.

Another retracement analysis on the uptrend from 1,863 ringgit to the March 29, 2016 high of 2,793 ringgit shows that the correction from 2,793 ringgit also ended around the 61.8% level of 2,218 ringgit.

Similarly, the uptrend from the June 13 low of 2,425 ringgit failed to extend above a key resistance at 2,905 ringgit, the 61.8% retracement on the downtrend from 3,202 ringgit to 2,425 ringgit.

It seems that the contract follows the golden ratio closely whenever it has a decent retracement. The current correction may be deep enough to extend to 2,605 ringgit, a 61.8% retracement, or a bit further to 2,536 ringgit.

A break above 2,814 ringgit may signal a resumption of the uptrend towards the range of 3,019-3,202 ringgit. - by Wang Tao, Reuters

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 28): Malaysian palm oil futures fell sharply in early trade on Thursday, tracking weakness in rival edible oilseeds and set for a second straight day of losses.

The benchmark palm oil contract for December delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange fell 1.8% to 2,698 ringgit (US$637.83) a tonne at the midday break,
its sharpest decline since Sept 18.

Traded volumes stood at 26,797 lots of 25 tonnes each at noon.

"The heavy drop in China palm olein and weakness in rival oilseed soy dampened market sentiment," said a Kuala Lumpur based futures trader, referring to palm olein on China's Dalian Commodity Exchange and soyoil on the U.S. Chicago Board of Trade.

China soybean oil futures fell over 2% on Thursday, reaching their lowest level in three months, following a drop in global prices and amid ongoing pressure from large stocks.

A palm oil trader in Kuala Lumpur said Dalian's palm olein decline could be due to profit-taking ahead of a week-long long holiday. China's announcement on Monday that it would start acutioning soybeans its from state reserves could also weigh on trading sentiment, said traders.

Palm oil prices are affected by the performance of related edible oils such as soy, as they compete for a share of the global vegetable oils market.

Buyers would usually switch to soyoil if its spread with palm oil narrows, as it is perceived to be of better quality.

The December soybean oil contract on the Chicago Board of Trade was down 0.4%, while the January soybean oil contract on the Dalian Commodity Exchange fell 1.5%.

In other related oils, the January palm olein contract dropped as much as 2%.

Palm drops for fourth straight day, down on weaker soyoil

-A+A
KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 2): Malaysian palm oil futures fell for a fourth consecutive session on Monday evening, weighed down by weaker soyoil on the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) and expectations of rising stockpiles.

Public holidays in China and India, the top two buyers of the tropical oil, also kept trade subdued.

The benchmark palm oil contract for December delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange was down 1.1% at 2,666 ringgit (US$629.96) a tonne at the close of trade.

Palm earlier fell to a daily low of 2,655 ringgit, its weakest since Aug 18.

Traded volumes stood at 38,588 lots of 25 tonnes each on Monday evening.

"It looks like palm fell tracking the soybean oil market," said a Kuala Lumpur based futures trader. "Expectations of higher stockpiles also weighed on the market."

Malaysian palm oil inventories rose to 1.9 million tonnes at the end of August, their highest since February 2016.

Traders say production in September is expected to rise from the month before, in line with the seasonal trend, and could contribute to rising end-stocks.

A second trader earlier said palm prices could decline, "mirroring listless movement in rival oilseeds."

Palm oil prices are affected by the performance of related edible oils such as soy, as they compete for a share of the global vegetable oils market.

The December soybean oil contract on the Chicago Board of Trade was down 0.6%. China's Dalian Commodity
Exchange is closed for a national public holiday.

Palm oil may break a support at 2,694 ringgit per tonne and fall more to the next support at 2,651 ringgit, according to Wang Tao, a Reuters market analyst for commodities and energy technicals.

-A+A
SINGAPORE (Oct 4): Palm oil December contract may retest a support at RM2,651 per tonne, as it could have completed a bounce triggered by this level.

The support is identified as the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the uptrend from the July 19 low of RM2,512 to the Sept 14 high of RM2,876.

Three waves make up the correction from RM2,876. The third wave, labelled c, is capable of travelling to RM2,579, its 100% Fibonacci projection level.

Another retracement analysis on the third month continuous chart reveals a similar target at RM2,609.

Resistance is at RM2,694, a break above which could lead to a gain to RM2,737.

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 10): Malaysian palm oil futures slipped in early trade on Tuesday after five straight sessions of gains, tracking weakness in related edible oils on China's Dalian Commodity Exchange.

The benchmark palm oil contract for December delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange was down 0.1% at RM2,733 (US$647.32) a tonne at the midday break.

Traded volumes stood at 14,850 lots of 25 tonnes each at Tuesday noon.

"Palm oil is most likely down following the Dalian Commodity Exchange," said a futures trader from Kuala Lumpur.

The January soybean oil contract on China's Dalian Commodity Exchange fell 0.7%, while the January palm olein contract declined 0.6%.

Another trader said a stronger ringgit also weighed on palm prices, as this makes the tropical oil more expensive for holders of foreign currencies.

The ringgit, the currency of trade for palm oil, hit a one-week high against the US dollar and was last up 0.2% at 4.2230 per US dollar.

Rising inventory levels in Malaysia, the world's second largest producer of the tropical oil, could further weigh on palm prices.

Inventory levels at the end of September rose 4% from a month earlier to 2.02 million tonnes, data from industry regulator the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) showed on Tuesday.

Output declined 1.7% to 1.78 million tonnes, while exports rose 1.8% to 1.52 million tonnes.

In other related edible oils, the December soybean oil contract on the Chicago Board of Trade was down 0.2%.

Palm oil may break resistance at RM2,738 per tonne and rise into a range of RM2,765-2,791, according to Reuters market analyst for commodities and energy technicals Wang Tao.

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 17): Malaysian palm oil futures climbed to their highest in near three weeks on Tuesday, buoyed by overnight strength in related edible oils and on technical gains.

The benchmark palm oil contract for January delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange climbed 0.2% to RM2,767 (US$655.30) a tonne at the midday break, poised for a fifth straight session of gains. Earlier in the session, it touched RM2,768, its strongest since Sept 27.

Traded volumes stood at 24,371 lots of 25 tonnes each at the midday break.

"Palm is up as the external market remains firm," said a futures trader from Kuala Lumpur, referring to soyoil on the Chicago Board of Trade.

"However, the market is awaiting Dalian to dictate this afternoon's crude palm oil market," he added.

Another trader said palm futures were underpinned by technical gains, but this rally could be short-lived as the tropical oil's fundamentals looked bearish.

"We will have an increase in production and growth exports may reduce, and it could hit 2 million tonnes in stocks by December," he said.

Malaysia's palm oil stocks at end-September climbed 4% to 2.02 million tonnes from the previous month, while production in September fell 1.7% from August to 1.78 million tonnes, according to data from industry regulator Malaysian Palm Oil Board last week.

Exports rose 1.8% to 1.52 million tonnes.

However, production in October is seen rising on-month due to the higher number of working days.

In other related edible oils, the December soybean oil contract on the Chicago Board of Trade gained as much as 0.3%, while the January soybean oil contract on China's Dalian Commodity Exchange climbed up to 0.4%.

The January palm olein contract was up by 0.3%.

Palm's prices are impacted by movements of related oils as they compete for a share in the global vegetable oils market.

Palm still targets a range of RM2,782-2,812 per tonne, according to Wang Tao, a Reuters market analyst for commodities and energy technicals.
