Grinding data came in better than expected for cocoa. As traders waited for the data to be released, we saw new lows put in the September Cocoa contract. European grinding data came in much higher than last year’s numbers causing a two-day rally in the market. Since the release, we have seen pullback, most likely profit taking. The world continues to slowly reopen but as that happens, Covid cases appear to be on the rise in pockets. This uncertainly and constantly changing data is one of the main reasons for market volatility. Technically, the recent rebound has created new support. If the market can trade and hold above 2400, look for more buyers to be attracted back into the market. If clients want exposure for the chance that the market recovery holds, look at further out call options. The demand will eventually return, but the question is when and what will have to take place for investors to believe in the longer-term positive outlook.
