Looks like a slightly better crop coming but unlikely prices will crash and burn on the current crop as there is still some major end users searching the market for good quality raw materials.
The market is looking easier as more sellers appear as the frost risk disappears. It’s still unclear if 2014 crop stocks will be enough to bridge the gap till new crop as also there are buyers in the wings and those holding stock in Turkey do not have large amounts.
Only time will tell, but for the time being there are more sellers than buyers.
