The reais fell slightly by 0.05 %, the rate fell to 1 USD = 5,0400 reais after investors’ caution as Brazil’s economic growth results were slightly lower than expected and some vaccines Covid-19 did not work as expected. Locally adjusted USDX also supports inflation volatility in many countries.
World coffee prices weakened again when Brazil had significant rain, although the rainfall was still lower than the average for many years, it also contributed to alleviating the concern that drought caused a decline in grain quality.
Observers said that besides the pullback of digital currencies, causing speculative capital flows to move strongly through derivatives exchanges, there was liquidation and profit-taking of short-term speculation after the Conference. G7 pegs a minimum tax rate of 15% for multinational companies, causing the coffee futures market to have had a volatile session and most electronic price lists in the red.
The short-term global coffee supply in the medium term is expected, but the pressure of this year’s new crop of Brazil remains intact, with little spending lasting until the end of the third quarter of this year. Traders in the coffee trading center of São Paulo expect Arabica prices to close in 2021 at 160 cents/lb.
