Mar ’20 coffee futures have started the day with prices falling down even further form those mid-December highs as traders search for a sign of the bottom. At this point we are in oversold territory but trends in coffee can be relentless once a direction has been picked. Prices at the time of writing have reached what could be a solid support point on the daily chart that also matches a trend line of coffee lows going back to September. I wouldn’t be surprised if prices push lower and test 108’00 which looks to be a hard support level, but I think a corrective bounce at these prices is likely and I could see bears seeking to take profit as coffee begins to approach bargain prices again. To opportunistic bulls I would say keep a close eye on this market now as there could be a technical rally worth acting on in the near-future. However, should you act on the long side of coffee I’d be cautious about overstaying your welcome as the recent fundamentals have been bearish with a supply surge and the big money will keep selling this market down as far as it can take it. **For a free consultation call my direct line at (312) 373-4875** you may also send me an email at escoles@rjofutures.com
