Cocoa Futures Market News and Commentary

Cocoa Prices See Strength on Dry Conditions in West Africa

May ICE NY cocoa (CCK19) this morning is up +54 (+2.37%) and May ICE London cocoa (CAK19) is up +34 (+1.96%). Cocoa prices are higher this morning on short-covering due to forecasts for below-normal precipitation in West Africa over the next week, which may curb cocoa yields from the Ivory Coast and Ghana, the world's two largest cocoa producers. Cocoa prices dropped to 1-week lows Thursday as signs of 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 last Friday.
