VIEW PROFILE
Palm oil prices were being pressured in the past eight months as inventory climbs to historical high levels in the last quarter of 2012. Are prices of crude palm oil going to continue to decline or start to turn bullish this year? Price forecasting has always been a major indication for any businesses and economy for developing strategies. However, price forecasting is never easy as there are many theories and many factors that may affect price movement. One way to forecast price is through chart analysis and this paper aims to use chart analysis to forecast the price action for crude palm oil futures in the near term with high confidence level. This paper will describe the methods use, such as trend analysis, pattern and cycle analysis and support and resistance analysis to determine the next course of price direction and make near term forecasts. Other factors such as production, export and inventory of palm oil, crude oil prices, US dollar and soybean prices will be taken into consideration to support the forecast made using chart analysis. A conclusion will be made on the price forecast together with the forecast validity, and hopefully it will serve as a guide to benefit market players.

Dear Benny Lee, It would also be useful if you analyze the volatility movements of palm oil prices. From your plots, the price movements seem to follow martingale process but how about the volatility? How volatile will be the prices within next few months?

Hi Benny! Do you think that price of CPo can shoot up to 2800 in March?

Hi Rohit, Since 2011, price of palm oil has been very bearish as compared to soyoil and palm oil has been trading at a huge discounts. The discount is even more this year. Since the peak on April last year, CPO prices have fallen 32% while soyoil 14%. If price of soyoil were to fall US$11 per bushel, that's a 22% fall from the soyoil price of US$50. That would mean that the CPO discount would be smaller. So if price of soyoil falls slightly, we would not see much impact on CPO. But, if price do fall 22%, I am expecting price of CPO to fall about 10%.

Hi A.K.M. Fakhrul Alam, Yes it is one of the factors, but is currently the factor that puts pressure on prices

Inventory may be one of the factors, but may not be the main factor as experianced from past behavior of the market.

Dear Msusaihli, The main factor would be the inventory, which reached record high and is still currently high due to unexpected output in 2012 and lackluster demand in 2012. This put pressure on palm oil prices. Demand and output affects inventory, While output is more predictable, demand would be the main factor. Compeion from Indonesia affects demand for local palm oil as well.
