NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures 

NY sugar futures edged lower yesterday closing at 12.48 but managed to consolidate the previous day’s gains, keeping momentum on the front foot. The stochastics are falling and the MACD diff is negative, this suggests lower prices in the near term, however the more responsive RSI is improving. The bullish candle on Wednesday and the reaffirmation of support at 12 could trigger gains towards 13. A break here could set the scene for higher prices towards 13.50. On the downside, a break below immediate support at 12.35 could trigger losses back towards through support at 12 and the 40 DMA at 11.95. The key level on the downside is 11.50 and a break of this level would suggest a change of trend.

Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures 

Ldn sugar futures softened yesterday as selling pressure prompted a close at 348.50. The stochastics are showing signs of improvement as they have emerged from oversold territory. The MACD diff is negative and is converging on suggesting higher prices towards 355.80. The reaffirmation of support at 344.80 and bullish candle on Wednesday indicate we could see prices push back to 355.80. This suggests a rejection of the break out of the symmetrical triangle. However, if prices test previous trend support around 356 and reject this level, futures could break back below 334.80 suggesting a change in trend. To suggest higher prices, futures need to take out resistance at 360 and then target the recent high at 380.

NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures 

NY coffee futures gained ground yesterday as intraday trading prompted a test of the 10 DMA at 99 but the market closed just below this level at 98.35. The stochastics are falling and the MACD diff lacks conviction, the RSI is neutral and improving slightly as activity holds above key support. Price action continues to trade within a range but to regain upside momentum, prices need to close above 100 and then target the recent high towards 104.65. On the downside, a rejection of prices at the 40 DMA could trigger losses back through 95. Secondary support stands at 93 but we do not anticipate a test of this level in the near term.

Ldn 2nd Month Coffee Futures 

Ldn coffee futures gained ground yesterday as protracted buying pressure triggered a close on the front foot at 1243. The stochastics are in overbought territory and the MACD diff is positive and diverging suggesting a trend on the upside. To confirm the improved outlook on the upside, we need to see prices take out resistance at 1250 and then 1267. On the downside, apprehension around 1250 could trigger losses back towards 1200,  break below the 100 DMA and then 1173 to confirm the outlook of lower prices. Since May the market has traded the same range and lacked conviction in the longer term, a break out of the recent to the upside could trigger gains through 1300 towards 1350.

Quarterly Metals Report – Q4 2021

The global macro picture is starting to present some downside risks in the near term as China's economy is set to slow further and supply-chain bottlenecks continue to cap growth. New orders and new export orders in China are contractionary, and we expect demand in Q4. Order backlogs and lead times for products will continue in Q4, limiting growth, and real consumption is weaker than it looks. Higher costs from shipping, raw materials and energy will take their toll on the consumer, and we expect end-user demand to suffer. The final piece of the jigsaw is the reduction in stimulus from central banks and how that will impact financial markets, bond yields, and the dollar has rallied while stocks corrected, but what will this trend continue?
