December Coffee Consolidation

November 8, 2017 10:44AM CST

Heavy consolidation with wide swings seems to be the primary story in December coffee prices. Little, if any, additional news to swing what has been an overall weak demand for coffee, coupled with supply issues reported from the largest producers in the world, this consolidation with likely continue for a little while.

Since the large and massive selloff that began in mid-September, coffee prices have been able to garner some solid support (and now consolidate) at the 124 level. The wide consolidation range from 127 highs, to the 123 lows have allowed for option writers to collect some good premiums.

Until we hear some solid news to push prices out of this sideways action, we will likely see this continue. Keep an eye out for violations of the aforementioned range highs and lows, as they will likely act as very good support and resistance to gauge entry from either side.
