NY cocoa faces resistance at $3,270 SINGAPORE: New York December cocoa faces resistance at $3,270 per tonne, a break above which will lead to a further gain to $3,284.The resistance is at the 223.6 percent Fibonacci projection level of an upward wave C that started at the July 16 low of $3,051. This wave has much extended and may travel to $3,284 or $3,308, respectively the 238.2 percent and the 261.8 percent projection levels.However, these two targets could only be confirmed when cocoa breaks above $3,270. Given that the hourly RSI has formed a bearish divergence, chances are that cocoa may first retrace to $3,247, the 200 percent level.Wang Tao is a Reuters market analyst for commodities and energy technicals.
