SINGAPORE: New York March cocoa may gain more into a range of $2,296-2,343 per tonne, driven by a wave C.
Strategically, the target zone will be confirmed when cocoa breaks the nearest resistance at $2,249, the 38.2 percent projection level of the wave C.
When cocoa failed to break $2,249 in its first attempt on Dec. 7, it retraced deeply. A second failure to break this level could trigger a shallower correction to $2,190.
A break above $2,249 will confirm not only the target range of $2,296-2,343, but also a double-bottom, which suggests a target around $2,402.
