NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures gained ground yesterday but failed above 12, and closed at 11.96. The stochastics are rising and the MACD diff is converging on the downside suggesting improved buying pressure. The RSI is rising as well, and if the market manages to gain a footing above 12 and then breach 12.35 in order to regain upside conviction. This would confirm the reaffirmation of support at the 40 DMA. On the downside, the rejection of prices above 12 could set the scene for another breach of the 100 DMA to 40 DMA, a break of this level would confirm the recent downturn in prices and reaffirmation resistance at 12. We expect prices to improve in the near term towards 12.35.

NY 2nd Month Cocoa Futures

The stochastics are falling towards oversold, and the MACD diff is negative and diverging suggesting lower prices in the near term. The rejection of prices at 2400 and three full candles suggests strong downside momentum. A break of support at 2186 would confirm the trend on the downside and may trigger losses to 2100. Selling pressure is strong but support between 2186 and 2200 has been robust in recent months and this could trigger some of the recent losses to be taken back. In the long run, the 200 DMA is the key level prices need to break in order to suggest a change in trend. We anticipate prices to soften in the near term.
