In last week’s shortened trading week, July coffee opened at 168.45 and closed the week at 157.50.
On the daily chart, you can see technicals reflect a strong trending market with ADX now at 39. MACD is bearish adding divergence from below the signal line and Stochastics are in deep oversold territory. You can see the range of 175-185 started in the beginning of April. Coffee started coming down from 240 in mid-January, finally broke 220 on Feb. 13 and never retested 220 again. Reading the trade management on the chart, you can see open trade equity of just over $24,000 per contract.

On the weekly chart, you see the large ongoing liquidation in net shorts and net longs by Producers and Managed Money has helped with coffee’s spiral down. I am hoping you see exactly what to watch for to catch the next ride up. When will that happen? Watch and see.
In the Legacy report you can see that Commercials are net long 6,722 contracts and large specs are net short -5,035 contracts. The more transparent disaggregated repot shows Producers (true commercials) net short -15,128 contracts and Swap Dealers net long 21,850 contracts, with Managed Money net short -13,247 contracts.
Always keep a “third eye” open for a possible change in posture by big money. Have a prosperous trading week.
