NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures

NY sugar futures posted an inside day yesterday, prices tested resistance at 13.70. The market closed at 12.58. The indicators are falling, the stohcastics are falling  out of overbought and the MACD diff is positive but starting to converge suggesting lower we could see lower prices in the near term. The ADX and DMI lacks conviction, we expect prices to decline in the near term through the 40 DMA after rejecting 14 earlier this week. The band of resistance between 13.80 -14 has held firm and we anticipate futures to buckle in the near term back towards 12.70 and 12.35. To suggest a change in trend futures need to break below the 50% fib level at 12.20. On the upside, if support around 12.25 holds firm, this could trigger gains through 13.80 before resistance at 14. Futres need to hold above 14 in order to set the scene for higher prices towards 14. Near term sentiment favours the downside. 

Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures 

Ldn sugar futures consolidated yesterday as intraday trading prompted futures to test support and resistance. The market closed at 386.60. The stochastics are overbought but are starting to out of this area suggesting lower prices, the MACD diff is positive and converging which strengthens the premise of lower prices. To confirm the sell signal from the stochasics and the rejection of higher prices, futures need to break below 383.43 towards 367.58 in the near term. The inside day and rejection of prices above 396 indicates lower prices in the near term. Yesterday's long legged doji and support at 383.43 could trigger gains back to 396 before testing 400. We expect prices to weaken in the near term. 


NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures 

NY futures edged higher yesterday after support at previous trend support prompted a close at 113.55. The stochastics are rising above neautral territory and the MACD diff is positive and diverging on the upside. Both outline the strength on the upside but prices need to break above 115 and hold above this level and then target the 40 DMA at 119.37 which is closing in. On the downside, to confirm the outlook of lower prices the market needs to take out 110 and then 108.55 before targeting 104. The market has been bid below 108.50 before and a break of this level would confrim the rejection of inverted head and shoulders. We expect another test of resistance but at this time question a close above 115.

On the upside, if support at 1250 may set the scene for higher prices to the 50% fib level and the 100 DMA. The bulls need to gain a footing abvoe 1300 to confirm the outlook of higher prices towards 1337.We expect selling pressure to continue in the near term.

On the upside, if immediate support holds firm this could trigger gains back towards 2415 and then the 200 DMA at 2462. If futures can gain a footing above the 200 DMA at 2462  this would set the scene for higher prices towards 2530. Near term sentiment is on the downside and we expect this to continue.

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?
