Expensive Easter Eggs

Chocolate lovers are in for a bittersweet surprise this Easter as cocoa prices reach record highs. The shortage of cocoa beans, exacerbated by adverse weather in West Africa, is driving up global cocoa prices and causing a stir in the chocolate industry.

Analysts warn that chocolate prices may surge ahead of Easter due to the soaring cocoa costs. Cocoa futures have spiked by nearly 40% in the past year, putting pressure on chocolate manufacturers to secure enough supply.

Jane Foley, head of FX Strategy at Rabobank, told the BBC Radio 4 Today program: “We have seen soybeans come down a lot, wheat is relatively flat but if we are looking ahead to Easter and Easter eggs, well we can expect chocolate to be more expensive because the prices for that have soared."

Cocoa futures prices (CC=F) have surged more than $3,800 or nearly 40% in the past 12 months to $6,553 per metric ton Tuesday.



Experts anticipate that chocolate Easter eggs could either shrink in size or come with a higher price tag this year to offset the rising cocoa prices. Major players like Hershey, Cadbury, and Nestlé are bracing for the impact of the cocoa scarcity on their products.

As the cocoa crisis unfolds, chocolate enthusiasts may find themselves facing a dilemma of higher prices or downsized Easter treats. The industry is navigating through a challenging period, with the potential for significant changes in the chocolate market.

Leadership Lift

Tony Robbins covers 6 strategies to reprogram your subconscious mind and create ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY:

1. Embrace Empowering Beliefs: Replace limiting beliefs with empowering ones to shape your reality. Challenge negative thoughts and replace them with positive affirmations that support your growth and success.

2. Embrace Uncertainty: Accept that life is unpredictable and focus on controlling your actions and reactions. Let go of the need for certainty and embrace the beauty of uncertainty to empower yourself to shape your own path.

3. Practice Gratitude: Shift your focus from criticism to gratitude to rewire your brain for positivity. Appreciate the present moment and embrace change with curiosity rather than fear.

4. Mind Your Environment: Be mindful of the influences around you as they shape your subconscious beliefs. Surround yourself with positivity and avoid negative influences that hinder your growth.

5. Visualize Success: Use visualization techniques to program your mind for success. Spend time each day visualizing your goals and dreams as if they have already come true to boost your confidence and motivation.

6. Utilize Binaural Beats: Experiment with binaural beats, a form of biohacking, to induce a relaxed state and reprogram your subconscious mind. Harness the power of music to trigger specific brainwave states for improved mental focus and clarity.

​By implementing these strategies, you can effectively reprogram your subconscious mind, harness the power of ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY and unlock your full potential for personal and professional growth

Market Analysis

AUM Navigator - Bullish Power Mode

The AUM Navigator has 6 modes:

Bullish Power - Bullish - Bullish Neutral

Bearish Power - Bearish - Bearish Neutral

Growth Portfolios - Remain Bullish

Pictured below is a chart of the SP500. Price is currently exhibiting strong bullish action. You can clearly see our AUM Navigator flashed a cycle bottom in late October. This gave us a bullish entry into the market. Price is approaching the top of this channel. I would expect it to bounce off the top of the channel followed by a short-lived correction, and then continue to press upward. As we press toward the top of this channel, now would be a good time to harvest gains out of growth positions and into fixed income/money market until we get past the expected short-term correction. Your clients will love you!

New Money - Hold in Stable

As you have new money coming under management, this is not the best time to invest in growth portfolios. We don't buy at the top of the market! Hold new money in fixed income/money market until after this expected short-term correction. Wait until a new bullish entry presents itself.
