Coffee filled the gap

Hello coffee lovers !

On Friday night, 2nd chance to buy coffee at $1.05 happened.

Arabica Coffee futures traded to $1.0490.

Will keep you posted how it turns out.

Rule # 1: Be sure to roll over your futures contract otherwise you’ll need a lot of room if you accidentally take physical delivery.

2nd chance to buy coffee

Coffee didn’t quite trade down to the $1.06 buy price I was looking for, as per my July 31, 2020 note. (see link below)

Instead, it carried on higher from the $1.15 level mentioned, towards a $1.34 high.

The chart below shows a trend line it hugged and held, until it didn’t.

A trader protecting their position may have placed a stop loss order about 1 cent below that trend line.

The long term supply disruption theme remains intact, however the short term gyrations have seen it trade back to its 200 day moving average albeit its not yet oversold.

I may have a second chance to buy coffee around the $1.05 level, but I’ll watch it closely for the velocity of the decline and whether it holds recent lows.

Buy a container of coffee beans

The price of arabica coffee has fallen to 4 year lows. (Are you paying less for your coffee lately?)

While the demand for coffee has remained steady for the past decade, only recently has supply increase, thus explaining the fall in the price of the commodity.

Compare this to the 1,000 cups that each Norwegian or Finn drinks, each year, which is equivalent to about 10 kilograms (kgs) of coffee.

Although Scandinavians love their coffee, the largest coffee market in the world is the United States of America, where it’s averaged that each person consumes 4 kgs per person, each year.

Roasted coffee beans Español: Granos de café t...So where is the upside?

The tea-loving Chinese only drink an average of four cups of coffee, per person, per year.
Just imagine if the Chinese taste buds change as Starbucks and Espresso bars start popping up around the place?

Or perhaps a wider group of Americans increase their coffee intake.
If that story doesn’t pan out, recent studies suggest that drinking coffee can halve the risk of suicide. As mental illness becomes prevalent and should the economy deteriorate again, it’s plausible that drinking more coffee could be added to a doctors prescriptions.

Although that advice won’t help the growing insomniac population, which is a future blog post topic.

So, with prices being low, it’s not a bad idea to go and buy a shipping container full of raw, green Arabica Coffee and keep them for a while.

“Green” coffee beans that are stored in a dry environment can last for up to 10 years.
Furthermore, stored beans are then considered “aged beans”, which over time lower their acidity and increase their body.

Just An Idea!
