Crude oil, copper, precious metals, and a host of other commodities prices fell dramatically. Central banks around the world led by the US Fed stepped in, cut interest rates, and dug deep into their monetary policy toolboxes to stabilize the global economy. Since then, markets have experienced speedbumps, but nothing like the conditions seen in 2008. In 2011, many commodity prices reached new highs as the... more

Coffee Makes Upside Progress Since Mid-October

Mon, 12/02/2019 - 00:00
The coffee futures market can be one of the most volatile markets in the world. The world’s leading producer and exporter of Arabica beans is Brazil. The weather conditions in the South American nation and the level of Brazil’s currency often causes price variance in the coffee market. While the Arabica futures on the Intercontinental Exchange use the US dollar as a pricing mechanism for coffee, the local production costs in Brazil are in the Brazilian currency.

In 2018, the price of nearby NYMEX futures traded between $42.36 and $76.90. This year, the range has... more
