In previous weeks, the value of the ton had reached a price of $ 3,250 and there was talk of a possible supply deficit for the fourth consecutive year, since the oldest plantations in the Ivory Coast are being affected by plagues.

The barrel of reference for Ecuador was quoted yesterday below $ 39, but in the final stretch it recovered some lost ground after a decrease of the operational wells in the US.
