The market is experiencing bullish trends, but it is important to consider that any shift in participant expectations could affect market sentiment when everyone is optimistic.

Additionally, the market has already accounted for reduced production from India and Thailand, a slower start to the Brazilian crop, and potential export delays.

Analysts are therefore challenged to explain this trend.
