NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures buckled yesterday as selling pressure prompted a break of trend support, and close at 11.92. The stochastics are falling towards neutral territory and the MACD diff is also negative. The RSI is also falling, and the recent selling pressure could set the scene for lower prices towards 11.50. This would help confirm the rejection of resistance at 12.35 and rejection of the descending triangle. Futures remain supported at the 100 DMA but if prices closed below this level, in the near term this would help confirm downside impetus. On the upside, if futures are well supported around the 100 DMA and trend support and break above 12.35 in order to regain upside momentum. The longer-term resistance level at 12.93, and the gap at 12.93 and 12.97. The close on the low yesterday and indicators suggests that we could see lower prices.

The stochastics are falling towards oversold territory, the gap between the stochastics suggests lower prices in the near term. The MACD diff is negative and diverging on the downside, the RSI is also weak but prices need to break 354.83 and the 100 DMA could set the scene for lower prices towards the 50% fib level, a break below the 38.2% fib level would help confirm the descending triangle. The 40 DMA is rising and this may support the market in the near term.

NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures
NY coffee futures held their nerve yesterday after prices failed into resistance at 100 and closed at 98.20. The stochastics are rising, and the MACD diff is positive and diverging suggesting improving sentiment on the upside. The market has been supported around 95 in recent weeks and this could set the scene for higher prices but the market needs to take out 100 and then 103.21. To confirm the break of trend resistance and rejection of the descending triangle prices need to take out resistance at the 40 DMA and challenge 108.67. On the downside, repeated failure into the 100 and yesterday’s candle may trigger losses through support at 95 and trigger losses to 93. Long term momentum is on the downside and we expect this to remain the case on the longer term.

The reaffirmation of support at the lower trend channel could set the scene for higher prices in the longer run. On the downside, rejection of prices at 1200 may set the scene for futures towards 1150. This level is key on the downside and a break of this level would help confirm downside momentum.

The longer-term resistance level remains the 200 DMA at 2499 and futures need to break above this level in order to suggest a change in trend. On the downside, repeated rejection of lower prices through 2200 would prompt futures to regain downside momentum. The recent trend is on the downside but the consolidation above 2200 indicates robust support at this level.
