NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar prices declined yesterday after prices rejected resistance at 12.35. The market closed at 12.04. The stochastics are starting to weaken, the MACD diff is positive and converging. The RSI, sell signal from the stochastics and MACD diff converging suggests we could see lower prices in the near term. A break below the 100 DMA and trend support could set the scene for a test of support at 11.05. The reaffirmation of support around 11.50 or 11.25 would improve the outlook in the long run. Conversely, a breach of this support level would confirm a change in trend. On the upside, if support at the 100 DMA holds firm could set the scene for higher prices through 12.35. Secondary resistance stands at 12.60 before the gap at 12.93, which would help to confirm the ascending triangle. We expect prices to edge lower in the near term.
Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures
Ldn sugar prices sold off sharply yesterday as protracted selling pressure caused a test of trend support around 360. The market closed at 360.60. The stochastics are falling and have given a sell signal, and the MACD diff is negative and starting to diverge. A break below the 100 DMA would set the scene for lower prices towards the 40 DMA. The psychological level, in the long run, is 320. On the upside, if support at the 100 DMA and the trend support holds firm, we could see futures break back above 370 towards the recent high at 380. The market has been apprehensive in recent weeks. We anticipate futures we weaken in the near term, helping to confirm the full candle and weakening indicators.
NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures
NY coffee futures weakened yesterday as futures failed into trend resistance and closed at 96.75. The stochastics are starting to improve and have emerged from oversold. The MACD diff is positive but lacks conviction, the descending triangle is coming to fruition. A break above trend resistance and 100 would confirm the rejection of the descending triangle and bullish engulfing candle. This may pave the way for higher prices to 104 with the tertiary level at 108.90. Conversely, the reaffirmation of resistance yesterday suggests lower prices and a close below 95.80 with higher volumes could set the scene for higher prices towards 93 and 90. Yesterday’s full candle could trigger a break of support today. The indicators are starting to improve but momentum remains on the downside.

The reaffirmation of support yesterday could trigger gains towards the 40 DMA and previous trend support. In the long run, resistance at 1267 needs to be broken to regain upside conviction. Conversely, a breach of support at the upper trend channel may set the scene for lower prices to 1116. If futures take out of this level, this would reaffirm the trend on the downside. We expect prices to weaken in the near term.
