Coffee "C" Market Information - ICE Futures U.S. Exchange
IntercontinentalExchange® (ICE®) became the center of global trading in
"soft" commodities with its acquisition of the New York Board of Trade (NYBOT) in 2007. Now known as ICE Futures
U.S®, the exchange offers futures and options on futures on soft commodities including cotton, cocoa, frozen concentrated
orange juice, sugar and coffee in both its Robusta and Arabica varieties. While ICE Futures U.S. offers contracts on both
varieties, the benchmark Coffee "C"® contract is for Arabica.
Coffee futures have traded in New York since 1882, first on the Coffee Exchange of New
York (later part of the Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa Exchange), then on the New York Board of Trade and now on ICE Futures U.S.
Options on coffee futures were introduced in 1986. Futures and options on futures are used by the domestic and global coffee
industries to price and hedge transactions. The ICE Futures U.S. Coffee "C" contract is the benchmark for world
coffee prices. The contract's depth, liquidity and volatility, along with its diversifying properties vis-à-vis other
commonly traded futures, have made it preferred instrument among commodity trading advisors and hedge funds. ICE Futures U.S.
is the exclusive global market for Coffee "C" futures and options.
