NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures

NY Sugar 28022024

NY sugar futures edged higher yesterday, breaking above resistance at 10 and 40 DMAs and closing at 22.68. The stochastics are rising, with %K/%D diverging on the upside away from the oversold territory, and the MACD diff is negative and about to converge on the upside, sending a buy signal. The reaffirmation of support at 10 DMA at 22.35 could set the scene for higher prices back to test the 23.00 level. On the downside, futures need to break below the support of 40 DMA in order to end the recent sessions’ upside trend. Indeed, the 10 and 40 DMAs are providing robust support levels. Another bullish candle would create the formation of the three white soldiers, which would confirm the outlook for higher prices. The market needs to gain a footing above 23.00 in the immediate term to improve the outlook.
