NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures 

The market sold off on Friday as lack of appetite for prices prompted a close at 13.84. The stochastics are falling towards oversold but the MACD diff is negative but fails to diverge further. The RSI is falling but if prices hold above the 76.4% fib level at 13.79, and trend support we could see prices push back above 14 before targeting 14.17. These near term resistance levels need to be broken in order to regain upside conviction. To confirm the continuation of the upward trend, prices need to take out the recent high at 14.57. On the downside, a breach of the 76.4% fib level would bring into play the 100 DMA at 13.44. Secondary support stands at 13 and a break of this level would indicate a change in trend. We expect futures edge higher in the near term but futures need to close above 14.17.

On the downside, the rejection of 400 and the bearish engulfing candle could trigger losses through immediate support at 391.10 at towards 383.43 which is the 61.8% fib level. The indicators are starting to plateau and this could trigger gains on the upside in th medium term.

The stochastics are falling and are in neutral territory, the MACD diff has just switched to being negative and this indicates improving sentiment on the downside.

Secondary support stands at 113.03 and this could trigger losses back to 110, a break of 115 would also confirm the triple top at 124.15.

The stochastics are falling towards oversold and the MACD diff is negative and diverging suggesting lower prices in the near term. The rejection of previous trend support outlines a rejection of higher prices, but futures need to take out support at 1350, before 1330. A break of this level would set the scene for lower prices towards 1300, and outline a change in trend. On the upside, support for prices at 1350 could trigger gains back to the 10 DMA before targeting the 76.4% fib level at 1391.68. The key level on the upside is 1400 and a break above this level would regain upside conviction and may set the scene for a test of 1450. However, near term momentum is on the downside and we expect further softness.

In order to confirm the outlook of lower prices, support at 2500 needs to be broken and this would confirm the rejection of 76.4% fib level. The 40 DMA is starting to rise and we expect this to provide support in the medium term. On the upside, futures need to close above 2694 in order to regain upside conviction. Superseding this level, resistance stands at 2736 before the psychological level at 2800. We expect prices to edge lower in the near term.

Central banks are data-dependent, which could mean they slow rate hikes as growth starts to slow. This has meant a downside to the US 10yr yield, but also we see a downside to rate hikes in Q4. Europe will likely enter a recession before the US and take longer to recover, but material availability is significantly lower, shown by low inventories.
