Cocoa Futures Market News and Commentary

Cocoa Prices Close Higher on Dry Conditions in the Ivory Coast

July ICE NY cocoa (CCN19) on Monday closed up by +34 (+1.44%) and July ICE London cocoa #7 (CAN19) closed up by +14 (+0.81%). Cocoa prices on Monday rebounded from early losses and moved higher with July NY cocoa at a 2-week high and July London cocoa at a 1-1/2 week high. Cocoa prices recovered on concern about dry conditions in the Ivory Coast that may curb cocoa yields after data from the U.S. Climate Prediction Center showed below-average rainfall in the Ivory Coast during May 13-19. Cocoa prices had opened lower Monday on strong Ivory Coast cocoa production data. Monday's data from the Ivory Coast government showed that Ivory Coast cocoa farmers sent 1.93 MMT of cocoa to ports during Oct 1-May 19, up +18.4% from the same time last year. Another negative for cocoa prices is an increase in current supplies after cocoa inventories in ICE-monitored warehouses rose to a 9-month high last Friday of 4.548 million bags. Last Wednesday's data from the Ghana Cocoa Board showed that cocoa production in Ghana, the world's second largest cocoa producer, was strong as cocoa purchases from Ghana farmers during the first 30 weeks of the harvest (Oct 5 through May 2) rose +5.5% y/y to 726,130 MT. Cocoa prices have underlying support from strong global demand with reports released in April that showed cocoa consumption in Q1 rose by +2.0% y/y to 121.129 MT in North America, by +3.3% y/y to 370,359 MT in Europe, and by +9.5% y/y to 208,388 MT in Asia.
