Tridge summary

On May 18, 2024, coffee prices surged on both the London and New York exchanges, with Robusta and Arabica prices increasing by nearly 3% and 4.3% respectively. This price hike is attributed to expectations of a Fed interest rate cut, erratic weather conditions threatening coffee production, and a decrease in Vietnam's Robusta exports. Domestically, Vietnam's coffee market experienced an increase, with prices nearing 104,000 VND/kg. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development also forecasts a 20% decrease in Vietnam's coffee output in the 2022/23 crop year, further driving up prices. Despite a temporary decrease in April 2024, the domestic price continued to rise, trading around 103,500 - 104,200 VND/kg.
