Tridge summary

The global coffee market has seen a notable decline in prices for May 2024 deliveries, with Robusta coffee in London dropping by 3.61% to 4,081 USD/ton and Arabica coffee in New York decreasing by 3.27% to 239.85 UScents/pound. This downturn is largely attributed to the pressures of liquidating buying positions, a strong USD, and the liquidation of futures contracts following a month of price increases. Additionally, domestic prices in Vietnam have also fallen, reflecting the broader market trend. The market's attention is now on weather conditions in Brazil and Vietnam, key coffee-producing countries, as Brazil enters its drier winter months and Vietnam experiences drier than usual conditions in April. Despite a high export turnover for Vietnam in the first quarter, the global coffee market faces adjustments due to a forecasted slight surplus for the 2023 - 2024 crop year.
