While Coffee is on a 9 day bullish trend, Today's session might suggest a slow down — Coffee trades at $188.4 per pound, after ending yesterday at $188.45.
Arabica Coffee's state is reflected by market data as United States Crude Oil Inventories came out at 597,000, better than analyst estimates of -583,000 and improving upon the previous reading of -3.74 million. United States Consumer Price Index came out at 0.1%, while a consensus of analysts was expecting 0.2%. United States Consumer Price Index released yesterday at 12:30 UTC with a figure of 5%, while the previous figure was 6%.
Technical analysis trend indicators suggest that investors are seeking long positions as Coffee price action surged above +100 — a key CCI threshold indicating an imminent bullish trend. Analysis based on the asset volatility indicates that Arabica Coffee's upper Bollinger Band® is at $190.16, suggesting that a downward move may follow.
Overall, while Coffee has been on an uptrend, technical indicators suggest that it has no obvious direction for the immediate future.
