Aluminium: Price increased by 10% in two weeks

Aluminium has hit a new all-time high of $3,313 due to the escalating concerns over inventories and further supply disruptions. The boiling tension between Russia and the West has raised prospects of sanctions on one of the world's largest metal suppliers. As a result, the threat to the supply has triggered the soaring appetite for aluminium stocks and pushed the price to the sky.

In the eastern world, China's aluminium production has been halted as the government restricted the pollution for the winter Olympics. The price of the key metal commodity has been rising by more than 10% for the past two weeks.

The daily chart has shown that the price of aluminium has been following the ascending moving band since the end of December. The previous pressure level, October high at 3180, has now turned to support the price. Overall, the momentum remains on the upside as a pack of strong bull signs in prospect: a series of high lows, up-pointing 20, 50, and 100 days moving average, and a relatively high trading volume even when the price touched an all-time high.

Crude Palm Oil: Production and supply issue escalates

Like many commodities, palm oil, has enjoyed an excellent year in 2021 and continues the momentum in the New Year: its price has now almost doubled for the past 12 months.

This week, Malaysian palm oil futures were trading around MYR 5,931 per tonne, an all-time high to face the recent record on January 30th amid robust demand and supply constraints.

The supply for the sought-after oil is pointed to get tighter as total palm oil inventory in February fell 3.85% and production dropped by 13.54%.

The world's top palm oil producer, Indonesia, also adds extra significant pressure to the supply by requesting its producers to sell 20% of their planned exports to the domestic market only.

An up-moving trajectory can be noticed on both daily and weekly charts, which is expected to see the price of crude palm keep challenging a new high. The only sign that could raise the alarm is the RSI indicator, which has reached the overbought territory with a four-week-high reading from the weekly chart. As such, a near-term breather might be on the table before the price climbs to another hilltop. For bull buyers looking for an entry point, the current support at MYR 5824 should be a critical level worth keeping a close eye on.

DETAILS: With yesterday’s session we’ve had a spike in volume on the bull side, which could make us start thinking the correction is either completed, or soon to be.

These Elliott Wave predictions play a crucial role in identifying potential trends and reversal points in the stock's price movement.     * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* The Elliott Wave analysis on the daily chart of Coca-Cola shows a corrective phase within a flat structure, identified as minute wave {c} of 2. This phase is categorized under a counter trend function, suggesting that the ongoing correction is approaching completion. The recent trading session marked a significant increase in volume on the bullish side, hinting at a nearing end to the correction.

    • I came across an interesting new meme token called EPIK that launched on the Solana blockchain earlier this month. It features a playful little duck character and has been gaining traction since its debut. In my opinion, several factors contribute to EPIK's potential. Meme coins naturally attract attention, and EPIK's unique duck character design helps it stand out. Additionally, backing from crypto influencers has fueled market interest. It seems on-chain activity is also picking up steam, with daily TV reaching millions of dollars and the number of holders approaching 10,000. With a strong community presence in both English-speaking and Chinese-speaking communities, a recent listing on Bitget potentially exposing it to a much wider audience, coupled with the potential for further price increases, I believe EPIK is a project to keep an eye on.
