The intermediate trend in coffee has been up, likely supported by a weak US dollar, strong Brazilian Real, and a strong crude market. Spotty rains throughout Vietnam, weighed against solid production numbers from Columbia, should have March coffee prices consolidating in a game of tug of war for a while. The 132 – 125 range is no stranger to coffee prices, as they remained in this range from October through December of last year. I would expect to see quite a bit more consolidation but closely monitor the upside 132 level for any potential breakout, as coffee prices need very little fresh fundamental news to revisit the highs from last year.
