NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures recovered from early losses on Friday, as appetite for prices around 11.80 prompted a close at 10.97. The indicators remain elevated as the MACD diff is positive and the stochastics hover around overbought. This could set the scene for higher prices back to 11.30 before 11.50. The downside tails suggest an appetite for prices and this helps improve the outlook on the upside but futures need to break above 11.50 to confirm the inverse head and shoulders. Conversely, rejection of prices above 11 could trigger a retracement back towards 10.50 where the 40 DMA is. A subsequent breach of this level would bring into play 10.
