Cocoa Futures Market News and Commentary

Cocoa Climbs to a 2-1/2 Month High on Fund Short Covering

September ICE NY cocoa (CCU22) on Thursday closed up +2 (+0.08%), and September ICE London cocoa #7 (CAU22) closed up +4 (+0.23%).

Cocoa prices Thursday extended Wednesday's technical short-covering rally up to a 2-1/2 month nearest-futures high.  London cocoa also received a boost after the British Pound (^GBPUSD) dropped to a 3-1/2 week low against the dollar.  A weaker pound boosts cocoa priced in sterling.

An extreme short position by funds in NY cocoa futures may fuel any short-covering rally.  Last Friday's weekly COT data showed funds boosted their short position in NY cocoa futures by 138 in the week ending Aug 9 to 31,522 short positions, the most in about three years.

Cocoa prices Tuesday fell to 1-week lows on ample cocoa supplies from the Ivory Coast after the Ivory Coast government reported that Ivory Coast cocoa farmers sent a cumulative 2.4 MMT of cocoa to Ivory Coast ports from Oct 1-Aug 14, up +0.4% y/y.
