NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY Sugar futures lost ground yesterday as selling pressure remains to pronounce, prices closed at 12.05. The MACD diff is negative and starting to diverge suggesting strong selling pressure, the RSI is also falling. To help confirm the selling pressure from the stochastics, prices need to close towards the 40 DMA. Selling pressure recently has been strong outlined by the full candles on the downside and the indicators alike suggest lower prices in the near term. On the upside, if futures can find support between the 40 DMA and 12 in the near term this could set the scene for higher prices back above 12.35 before targeting 13. We expect prices to soften in the near term.
