We published a buy recommendation in the coffee futures market on June 22. We suggested that based on the movement we saw in the Commitment of Traders Report as well as the discrepancy between JO, a coffee ETF versus the coffee futures, that the coffee futures market had become oversold and commercial traders were building a base to force short covering in the futures market.
The coffee futures market has rallied 20% since then and commercial buyers from one month ago have turned sellers. Commercial sellers have pared their position by 23% in the last three weeks. The heavy selling has turned momentum negative while Thursday and Friday’s action created a reversal and sell signal from overbought levels. We will be selling September coffee futures and placing a protective stop above Friday’s high of 190.85.
