Cocoa prices were little changed Tuesday, as traders awaited further clues on global cocoa demand from a pair of grinding reports from Asia and the U.S.Cocoa for September eked out a gain of 0.1% to settle at $1,911 a ton on the ICE Futures U.S. exchange. Prices for cocoa have been swinging wildly in recent weeks, in part driven by signs of improving demand from chocolate producers.
Sugar dropped Monday, as traders once again turned their focus to underlying market fundamentals amid a calming Brazilian real. Raw sugar for October fell 1.1% to 14.15 cents a pound on the ICE Futures U.S. exchange. Sugar futures rallied in the last three sessions last week, as the Brazilian currency sharply strengthened against the dollar. A stronger real discourages local mills to send sugar overseas as domestic prices are relatively stronger.
Cocoa continued its upward march Friday, buoyed by signs that cocoa demand has revived after a long slide in prices. Cocoa for September gained 2.3% to settle at $1,915 a ton on the ICE Futures U.S. exchange. Barry Callebaut Group, one of the world's largest chocolate producers, reported a 2.8% increase to 1.4 million tons in sales volume during the nine months through May 31, exceeding the 2% cocoa grind increase reported by the European Cocoa Association for the second quarter.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
