NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures were well supported yesterday as protracted buying pressure prompted a close above 14 at 14.12. The stochastics are rising and the MACD diff is negative and diverging. The RSI is rising and to confirm the outlook of higher prices, and yesterday’s full candle, prices need to take out resistance at 14.17. If futures can gain a footing above this level, this could set the scene for a challenge of secondary resistance at 14.50. The market has been well supported at the 40 DMA and this has kept the market on trend. Conversely, rejection of prices at 14.17 could trigger yesterday’s gains to be given back, a break below the 40 DMA would bring into play the 100 DMA at 13.17. The 61.8% fib level at 13.01 is a key level and a breach here would set the scene for lower for a challenge of 50% fib level. Near term momentum is on the upside but prices are below ley resistance, a break of this level and a fresh high from the stochastics would confirm momentum.

Ldn sugar futures were well supported at 400, prompting a break of resistance at 403 and closed above this level at 406.80. The stochastics are rising and are overbought and the MACD diff is positive and diverging suggesting higher prices in the near term. The RSI is also rising and the break above previous resistance outlines strength in the market. In order to confirm the new high, prices need to hold above 403 and then challenge 415. Yesterday’s buying pressure was strong but prices have repeatedly failed above 403. This could trigger losses back towards trend support before the 40 DMA at 388.32, before the tertiary level at 383.43. Near term momentum is on the upside and the break above resistance at 403 yesterday confirms the reaffirmation of support last week. We anticipate prices to improve in the near term.

A break through the recent low would help confirm the outlook of lower prices towards 2200.
