NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures gained ground on Friday as buying pressure triggered a close on the front foot at 13.51. The stochastics are rising with the %K stochastic overbought, as the MACD diff is positive and diverging on the upside. This suggests we could see higher prices in the near term towards 13.80, but the market needs to take out immediate resistance at 13.60, before 13.80. On the downside, a band of resistance around 13.60-13.80, and if this level holds firm we could see prices retreat back through the 40DMA at 13.00 before 12.35. The 10 DMA is about to cross above the 40 DMA which can be bullish, futures need to take out 13.77 in order to confirm the outlook on the upside.

Superseding this level resistance stands at 394.20. On the downside, if futures fail into 377 then we could see futures break back below the 50% fib level at 367.50 before the 100 DMA at 358.60. We expect futures to firm in the near term back towards 380.

The 10 DMA is falling and is expected to provide resistance today, lack of appetite for prices above the 50% fib level could trigger losses back to 110.25. We expect to see futures gain ground in the near term back towards 120 after Friday's close and support between 110-112.
