Cocoa Futures Market News and Commentary

Cocoa Market News and Commentary

March ICE NY cocoa (CCH19) on Wednesday closed down -1 (-0.04%) and March ICE London cocoa (CAH19) closed down -10 (-0.61%). Cocoa prices moved lower Wednesday with Mar London cocoa at a new 5-week low. Signs of robust cocoa production in West Africa has led to fund selling of cocoa futures. Mar NY cocoa tumbled to a 1-month low Tuesday after Monday's data from the Ivory Coast, the world's biggest cocoa producer, showed that Ivory Coast farmers sent 1.235 MMT of cocoa to ports during Oct 1-Jan 20, up +9.6% from the same time last year. Today's data from Ghana, the world's second-biggest cocoa producer, showed strong output after the Ghana Cocoa Board reported that cocoa purchases from Ghana cocoa farmers rose +20.8% y/y to 525,856 MT during the first thirteen weeks of the harvest from Oct 5-Jan 3. Cocoa prices are still on the defensive due to signs of tepid demand after the National Confectioners Association reported last Friday that North American Q4 cocoa processing rose +1.2% to 117,526 MT, weaker than expectations of +2.5%. The European Cocoa Association reported last Wednesday that Q4 European cocoa grindings rose +1.6% y/y to 359,103 MT, below expectations of +2.0% y/y. On the positive side, the Singapore Cocoa Association reported last week that Asia Q4 cocoa grindings unexpectedly rose +6.3% y/y to 208,900 and that Asia 2018 full-year cocoa grindings rose +7.8% y/y to a record 780,956 MT. Mar London cocoa fell to a new 5-week low Wednesday morning after GBP/USD jumped to a 2-1/4 month high, which pressured London cocoa that is priced in British pounds. Cocoa prices recovered most of their losses Wednesday after Barry Callebaut, the world's largest cocoa processor, reported global chocolate sales were up +1.4% y/y during Aug-Oct.
