Key Quotes:

“With Chinese inventories at a decent level at present, and New Zealand production starting the 2018/19 season on a solid note, buyers appear patient currently.”

“However, that could change as seasonal production ramps up and the possibility of an El Niño event hampering production becomes a factor (note: not all El Niño events are the same). That said, with trade tensions threatening global growth there are offsetting downside risks on the demand side too.”
