RJO FuturesCast

Daily Futures Market News, Commentary, & Insight

There is no real change from the past couple of weeks for coffee. The bears are still solidly in control, with a large Brazilian crop on the horizon, strong US dollar and favorable weather throughout many of Brazil’s growing areas. From a technical perspective, ongoing violation of critical support areas (most recently 11690) continue to paint an extremely bearish picture for traders. As it stands, I am very comfortable with short, long term positions using long put options that allow exposure and leverage, while managing risk effectively. Expect more of the same for the foreseeable future.
