NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures

NY sugar futures failed into resistance at 14.17 on Friday, and this triggered a close at 14.02. The stochastics are falling and the MACD diff lacks conviction. The RSI is neutral and as prices hold above the 40 DMA, this could set the scene for higher prices in the coming sessions. The upside tail and inverted hammer, indicated renewed buying pressure and may suggest higher prices in the near term but futures need to close back above 14.20 in order to regain upside conviction. In the medium term, futures need to take out 14.60 in order to confirm the outlook of higher prices. On the downside, repeated of priced above 14.10 may set the scene for lower prices to through 13.80 towards 13.37. In order to suggest a change in trend, the market needs to take out support at 13. We expect prices to hold above the 40 DMA and re-challenge the recent high.

Secondary resistance stands at 130 which is a key psychological level for traders. However, prices have failed above 124 in recent weeks, triggering a break below 115 and then challenge of 110.

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?
