CPO & Plantation index may have peaked

Plantation index tested its all-time high at around 8950 on February 14. Since then, this index has been drifting lower.

From the CPO weekly chart below, we can see that the Parabolic SAR (short for 'stop-and-reversal' indicator) has moved above the CPO price. The immediate support for CPO is at the horizontal line at RM3200.

My gut feeling is that CPO has put in a top for this year. The same goes for Plantation index & stocks. It could be a good time to take profit on your plantation portfolio.
