Price of "C" Coffee Almost at $ 300 a Quintal

Widespread purchases by investors hit the markets influenced by a weak dollar and rising oil prices.

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

The report by the National Coffee Association of Guatemala said that bean prices for "C" type contracts continue to rise, reaching 1997 levels.

"Coffee prices in "C" contracts set a 13 year high. Investors hit the markets influenced by a weak dollar and rising oil prices, in addition to limited deliveries of March contracts, set up a scenario where certified inventories remain low. The Robusta coffee market also went on the rise, due to political instability in Côte d'Ivoire which still does not find a short term solution, causing distortions to supply in Robusta coffee and cocoa. Weather reports indicate that widespread rains caused some flooding in major coffee areas of Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais, which are favorable to alleviate dry conditions experienced during the month of February. Coffee for delivery in March 2012 is supported at 263.00 and resistance at 285.00."
