Coffee (COFFEENYCont) has something quite interesting going on since the low set back in January. It has been moving steadily higher, with higher lows and higher highs. And as we can see, the up-legs are now lasting longer then the pullbacks from a time perspective as well.
This is indicative of a new bullish trend that is also confirmed by the 50 and 200 day moving averages trending higher.
Looking at the time cycles, we have a possible alignment with the move off the 2011 highs and the subsequent low and a bounce into the peak in October 2014, and the down-leg lasting from that peak to the low point that was hit in January this year. It isn't been a perfect alignment, but it is close enough, given the long time frames. From a price perspective the 2011 peak aligns with the low set in January. This is also indicative of a bullish trend.
Looking at the shorter time frames, price is now consolidating the last burst higher off the late May/early June lows into the June 8 peak. So far the price has managed to close above the key Gann level at 133, which is positive. Should we see a close above $139/pound, pivot signals are for higher prices into resistance at $151/lb, $156/lb and $163/lb.
