NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY futures lost ground yesterday as selling pressure triggered a test of support at 12 and the 100 DMA to close at 12.10. The stochastics are in positive territory and overbought but the MACD diff is positive and starting to converge. The reaffirmation of support at 12 and the 100 DMA would set the scene for higher prices through the recent high at 12.40. The ADX is positive and momentum helps suggest higher prices. Secondary resistance is 12.60 before the gap at around 13. On the downside, a break below 12 would bring into play the 10 DMA before trend support. This level has been supported in recent months but if prices breach this level in the medium term, we could be set for a challenge of 10.80.
