Goldman Sachs sees little further upside risk in the short term to cocoa prices (they are up almost 20% since the end of June as poor rainfall suppressed pod development) due to “…the still high cocoa stocks-to-use ratio”.
According to the bank cocoa prices are likely to remain high through 2014.
“With cocoa grind posting strong growth across regions, 2013-14 will likely feature a second consecutive draw on global inventories and support cocoa prices.”
