Coffee Futures Continue to RallyPosted 09/11/2019 9:48AM CT |
Dec ’19 coffee continue to rally for a second day after closing above the range it had been consolidating in on Monday. Managed funds are still heavily net short on this commodity and could provide a significant amount of fuel to rising prices by simply covering their shorts and stepping to the sidelines. My analysis suggests we could see Dec ’19 coffee reach up to 118’00 again this fall with strong support from both supply and demand aspects in the fundamentals. Dry weather in Brazil currently could impact the coffee trees ability to flower which may stress impact the next production season as well. If the fundamentals continue on a bullish track and inspire managed money funds to convert from today’s shorts into tomorrow’s longs, coffee could become a full-blown bull market.
