Beans Building Near Term Momentum

PANAMA - Sep 20/19 - SNS -- International dry edible bean markets were generally quiet in light trade during the past week, with many key market players attending the ANUGA conference in Cologne.

Processors and exporters in the United States remain confident they will see at least the same volume of demand from Mexico as during the 2018-19 marketing season.

This was reflected in inter-dealer markets in the United States, with the result its spot index for dry edible beans inched up 0.3 points on the week to close at 117.3.
