European market still suffering from summer sluggishness.
However, the overall supply has remained stable and moderate yet again this week.
For the dollar origins, Ecuador remains below-average into Europe, Costa Rica is embarking on its seasonal increase, while the Colombian increase is ongoing, maintaining barely average levels (+1%).
Consequently, the overall dollar supply is still below average.
The Africa/French West Indies supply remains stable, at near-average levels. However, demand has shown no signs of improvement, with the sales tempo remaining slow.
Hence some stocks are still available, and clearances are being made on both the local and export markets. As regards prices, the situation seems to have stabilised in Southern Europe.
In Northern and Eastern Europe, prices are continuing to drop slightly.
On the Russian market, in the face of a lack of demand, prices are seeing a more distinct wane.
