NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY futures rejected resistance at 14 yesterday, and closed at 13.89 and posted an inside day. The stochastics are rising and are overbought but the MACD diff is also positive but has started to converge suggesting lower prices in the near term back to the 76% fib level. A break below 13.79 could trigger losses back to 13.27 and where the 40 DMA stands. The 100 DMA is rising and we expect this to provide support in the near term. There is a band of support between the 100 DMA and the 40 DMA and we expect the market to be supported at this level in the medium term. Conversely, if prices can gain a footing above 14 would trigger gains towards 14.50. A break of this level would confirm the ascending triangle.

The more robust level on the downside is the 61.8% fib level at 383.43 before the 40 DMA at 371.57. Futures need to break above the 76% fib level and then target 415. Momentum on the upside has started to wane and we expect to see a correction on the downside in the next few sessions towards near term trend support.
