Coffee Futures--- Coffee futures in New York are trading higher for the 3rd consecutive session currently in the July contract at 142.70 a pound looking like a possible bottom may have been hit a couple weeks ago at 135 on the fact of possible crop production cuts in Vietnam and  Central America due to drought and rust which could consume up to 20 to 30% of next year’s crop while this year’s crop should be very large coming out of Brazil and that is one of the reasons why prices have been going lower right near a new 2 ½ year low. Many of the commodity markets in recent weeks have been heading lower as the U.S dollar has rallied but coffee seems to have stabilized here at this level and remember coffee traded above 300 a pound over 2 years ago and has really fallen out of bed so eventually I do think if you’re longer-term investor these prices are very attractive down at these levels.

Precious Metal Futures-- The precious metals were mixed this week with silver futures getting hammered this Friday afternoon down $.56 at 28.65 an ounce down around $.20 for the trading week stuck in a 4 week sideways pattern which is unusual for silver to have this low of volatility for this long of a stretch still trading below its 20 day moving average which currently stands at 28.85 and far below its 100 day moving average which is at 31.65 with major support at $28 an ounce. Gold futures for the April contract my opinion are forming a rounding bottom trading higher than their 20 day moving average but below their 100 day moving average with stands at 1, 666 with major support at 1, 560 and the next resistance level which happened about 4 weeks ago at 1, 620 and if those levels are breached which I think could happen next week you will start to see the bull market come back while closing last Friday at 1, 593 up around $15 for the trading week. Copper futures for the May contract are still trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average finishing this week a positive note up around 300 points at 3.47 after settling last Friday at 3.52 down about 500 points for the week but coming off weekly lows which were hit at 3.40 which also created an 8 month low and I am scratching my head wondering why copper prices keep going down the housing market is doing so well if you look at lumber prices they are right near contract highs and the stock market continues to rally basically on a daily basis which I would think will start to lend support in the copper market and I do believe you should start taking advantage of these weak prices.

Chris Berry: Energy-Metals Juniors with Derisked Projects Are Takeout Bait

The Energy Report: In your Morning Notes in January, you defined much of the energy mining industry as an oligopoly. What do you mean by that?

Chris Berry: Industries like uranium, lithium, vanadium, rare earths or potash typically have a few players at the top that control production and hence pricing. This is a huge barrier to entry for juniors looking to join the ranks of producers.

TER: If the majors are producing enough material to meet today's demand, what are the prospects for the juniors in this market?

CB: It's challenging in the near term because I see supply and demand in balance in many of the metals markets. This is why companies with ample cash on their balance sheets should attract attentionthey can survive until demand recovers. Economic growth has slowed across the globe, which implies lower demand and less need for the many juniors out there.

Energy Futures--- Energy futures in New York today are mixed with crude oil trading far below its 20 and 100 day moving average bouncing off of 8 week lows earlier in the day but finishing near session highs at 91.82 up 30 cents with the next major support at $87 with the sequester over last weekend and major budget cuts for defense department traders are thinking that demand will be significantly less and that is the reason why you’ve  seen a $9 drop in crude oil in just a matter of weeks while April heating oil which has been in an absolute free-for-all except for Tuesdays  600 point rally but down about 50 points today currently trading at 2.97 a gallon with major support at 3.90 which has been hit 3 times in the last 6 months and rallied significantly but with the winter coming towards an end heating oil demand might start to weaken.

Grain Futures--- The grain market continues its bearish momentum this week with wheat trading below its 20 and 100 day moving average settling last Friday at 7.19 a bushel hitting 8 month lows this week and at one point actually cracked $7 a bushel currently trading right around 7.13 up slightly this Friday afternoon and as I’ve stated in many previous blogs I am extremely bearish and I think prices will head sharply lower from these levels possibly hitting the $6 level where they were before the drought took place last year with excellent crops around the world and renewed moisture in the Great Plains in the last week with heavy snow and rains.
