NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures were supported yesterday as appetite for prices at 13.15, prompting a close at 13.39. The market remains below the 10 DMA at 13.47 and the indicators are weakening suggesting lower prices. The stochastics are falling towards oversold but the %K stochastic has flattened and this could trigger losses towards the 40 DMA at 12.96 before 12.35. The MACD diff is negative but the RSI is rising. In order to regain upside momentum, prices need to break back above previous trend support and then robust resistance at 13.81. A break of 13.81 would help confirm the ascending triangle and the recent trend. Dips remain well bid keeping the trend intact but the market needs to breakthrough 14.

NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures
NY coffee prices consolidated yesterday after prices were well supported below 120 and recovered to close at 122.35.

Rejection of prices above 125 could trigger losses back to 115. The 40 DMA suggests higher prices in the near term, as does the hammer candle but prices need to gain a footing above 125 in order to confirm the outlook.
