Cocoa Futures Market News and Commentary

Cocoa Market News and Commentary

March ICE NY cocoa (CCH19) on Tuesday closed down -67 (-2.86%) and March ICE London cocoa (CAH19) closed down -12 (-0.72%). Cocoa prices closed lower Tuesday with Mar NY cocoa at a 3-week low and Mar London cocoa at a 4-week low on signs of robust cocoa production in West Africa. Monday's data from the Ivory Coast, the world's biggest cocoa producer, showed that Ivory Coast farmers sent 1.19 MMT of cocoa to ports during Oct 1-Jan 13, up +12.2% from the same time last year. Also, 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 +4.7% y/y to 455,663 MT during the first twelve weeks of the harvest from Oct 5-Dec 28. Cocoa prices last week rallied to a 6-month high on crop concerns in West Africa after Radiant Solutions said "mid-crop growth will be minimal" for cocoa crops as weather conditions throughout the Ivory Coast and Ghana have been overwhelmingly dry. Also, signs of stronger demand are positive for cocoa prices after the Malaysia Cocoa Board reported Malaysia Q4 cocoa grindings rose +22.5% y/y to 72,451 MT. In another supportive factor, Commitment of Traders (COT) data showed that hedge funds boosted their net-long London cocoa positions in the week ended Jan 8 to 11,004 positions, the most in 5 months.
