In conversation with ChiniMandi News, Mr. Michael McDougall – Managing Director at Paragon Global Markets, LLC, New York, USA shared his views on the ongoing rally. He said, “Decent volume started. Perhaps the market is being helped by the rebound in crude as crude’s sell off yesterday looked overdone. We at least have news that the largest Chinese refinery is cutting back on runs due to the pandemic by 5-10%. The market reacted like they were being cut back by 30%. Most likely, however, the rally today is being boosted by apprehension over the upcoming UNICA number today. Market channel resistance is 19.02, Support 18.80 and an opening gap between 18.52-18.54.”
