Coffee Prices Near A 5 Week High

Bookmark and Share

Coffee Futures---Coffee futures in the March contract settled last Friday in New York at 127.50 while currently trading at 129.80 a pound up about 230 points for the trading week as I have talked about the December contract but expiration is upon us so let's focus on March as I will be looking at a bullish position if prices break the 5 week high of 131.75 on a closing basis.

If that situation does occur I would place the stop loss under the 10 day low which stands at 124.80 risking around 700 points or $2,800 per contract plus slippage and commission as the risk is high as coffee is a very large contract.

The chart structure will start to improve early next week therefore lowering the monetary risk as prices are now trading above their 20 day moving average, but still below their 100 day which stands at 135.40 as volatility still remains extremely low.

At the current time my only bullish soft commodity recommendation is in the sugar market which is higher for the 6th consecutive session today as I am becoming bullish most commodity sectors so keep a close eye on coffee as we could be involved in this sleeping giant come next week's trade.
