Coffee Market Report August 2014: Market Remains Volatile But Lacks Direction

11 September 2014

Prices fluctuated significantly during August, with the ICO composite indicator dropping by 10 cents before jumping back up another 12 cents by the end of the month. Given the lack of new fundamental information, this volatility has been attributed mostly to fund and speculator activity in the market. The New York futures market exceeded $2/lb, hitting its highest daily level since early May, while Robustas on the London market ended the month down 1.5 cents. Inventories in importing countries have also jumped over the last few months, with higher levels in both the EU and USA. Read the full report on our blog>>
