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.
