Cocoa Futures Market News and Commentary

Cocoa Prices Close Lower for a Second Day on Robust Cocoa Output

May ICE NY cocoa (CCK19) on Thursday closed down -42 (-1.81%) and May ICE London cocoa (CAH19) closed down -16 (-0.91%). Cocoa prices moved lower Thursday for a second day and dropped to 1-week lows as strong cocoa production in West Africa spurred fund selling in cocoa futures. Monday's data from the Ivory Coast, the world's biggest cocoa producer, showed that Ivory Coast farmers sent 1.451 MMT of cocoa to ports during Oct 1-Feb 17, up +8.3% from the same time last year. Last Monday's data from Ghana, the world's second-biggest cocoa producer, showed strong output as cocoa purchases from Ghana cocoa farmers rose +15.4% y/y to 644,318 MT during the first seventeen weeks of the harvest from Oct 5-Jan 31. Another bearish factor is an increase in current supplies after cocoa stockpiles held at ICE-monitored warehouses rose to a 3-1/2 month high of 3.87 mln bags on Friday. May NY cocoa on Tuesday rallied to a 1-month high on weather concerns in West Africa. Forecasts for above-normal temperatures with dry conditions over the next week in West Africa may increase stress on Ivory Coast and Ghana cocoa crops.
