As of this post coffee prices are higher by 4.44% with prices approaching previous resistance just below the 50 day MA (light blue line) that was challenged last week. Prices appear to be on the rise as money managers bought the dip this week when prices were trading near three weeks lows.

CAD – The Loonie has a Broken Wing
I hate to date myself here but as a young man I was very fond of the video game duck hunt- a “classic” shooting game for the first version of Nintendo. Just as those birds fell from the sky I think the Loonie short term is headed south. Most followers are aware I have been […]
