Arabica coffee margin changes by ICE since 2008

4 分钟阅读

Feb 25 (Reuters) - ICE Futures U.S. has raised margins for trading arabica
coffee fourfold in the past two months during one of the biggest rallies in the
market's history as a drought scorching Brazil's main coffee-growing region has
raised fears about supplies from the world's No. 1 producer.
    In its sixth increase since mid-November, the Atlanta-based exchange hiked
the price of trading to $7,200 on Feb. 25, the highest in at least six years,
according to exchange data. 
    Arabica coffee and raw sugar futures turned lower on Tuesday on late
profit-taking after hitting their highest levels in months due to deteriorating
crop prospects in drought-hit top producer Brazil. 
    Following are the changes in percentage terms in arabica maintenance margins
for hedgers since 2008. (Source: ICE)
