NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures

The stochastics are falling towards oversold and the MACD diff is negative and diverging, suggesting lower prices in the near term. The break of the 100 DMA at 11.77 and the bearish engulfing candle suggests lower prices. Primary and secondary support stands at 11.50 and 11.36 respectively before 11. If prices find support at 11.50, this could prompt a recovery back above the 100 DMA. In the medium term, we could see futures break above 12.35. This level has provided strong resistance in recent weeks and a close above this level would prompt prices to regain upside conviction. We anticipate prices to retreat in the near term.
