Côte d’Ivoire satellite images

With the cocoa market maintaining a consistent, generally stable range over the last two months as most crop reports are favorable, we are watching for signals that may be a catalyst for a move in this market (Mar11).  Time series trend analysis using satellite imagery such as the one below (this example from ‘03) coupled with long range seasonal weather expectations guide our long range crop and market views.  This framework conbtributes to a suite of tools which we use to attempt to identify breakout signals.
