Fabas Bright Spot in Bean Market

PANAMA - Jan 4/19 - SNS -- International dry edible bean markets have been unusually quiet since the start of the holiday season, with exporters hoping buyers wake up by the middle of January.

This left markets largely unchanged, with sellers showing little interest in chasing buyers and buyers showing little interest in covering outstanding needs for the first half of 2019.

One exception was international fababean markets, which continued to advance because of a smaller than hoped harvest in Australia and problems with last year's harvest in the United Kingdom.
