NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures edged lower on Friday as prices failed above the previous day’s highs at 15.78 and then closed below at 15.58. The indicators are still favouring the upside; the stochastics are rising, with %K/%D converging on the upside and entering the overbought area, and the MACD diff is positive and diverging on the upside, confirming further buying pressures. A break below the 15.50 would bring into play the support at 15.29, the tertiary level on the downside is 15. On the upside, prices need to break above the previous day’s high at 15.78 before targeting 15.90 in the near term. Indicators point to additional bullish momentum, and we expect the prices to be supported above 15.50.
Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures
Lnd sugar futures softened on Friday after finding support above 440. The market closed at 445.20. The stochastics are gaining ground in the overbought territory, and the MACD diff is positive and diverging suggesting we could see higher prices in the near term through resistance 447.30. A break below 440 would bring into play the 435 level, which could set the scene for 10 DMA at 427.67. On the upside, futures need to gain back above 447.30 – the previous day’s high - in order to confirm upside momentum. The reaffirmation of support here could trigger gains towards the level at 452; this could strengthen the trend in the long run on the upside. The hanging man formation, where there was a significant sell-off during the day, points to an end of the uptrend, and we could see price edge lower in the near term.
NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures
NY coffee futures gained ground on Friday as buying pressure triggered a close on the front foot at 130.25. The stochastics are rising, as the MACD diff just crossed on the upside, signalling a buy trend in the near term. This suggests we could see higher prices in the near term towards 132.70, but the market needs to take out immediate resistance at 131 beforehand, the level which was rejected on Friday, confirming the ascending triangle On the downside, trend support around 125.80 is robust, and if this level does not hold firm, we could see prices retreat back through the 10 DMA at 126.10 before 125. Long upper wick on Friday points to the appetite for higher prices, however, futures need to hold above 131 in order to confirm the outlook on the upside.

The RSI is rising, and we expect futures to edge higher in the near term towards 100 DMA at 1360 today, with the 40 DMA level at 1367, the robust level on the upside. Superseding this level resistance stands at 1370. On the downside, if futures fail into 10 DMA at 1338, then we could see futures break back below 1317 before the 1300 level, helping to confirm the longer term trend.

RSI is rising marginally, and %K/%D converged on the upside out of the oversold area, confirming the change of trend in the near term. The MACD converged on the upside, confirming growing buying pressure. The DMI and ADX outline the negative trend we have seen in recent weeks, and the indicators converging suggests an end to that trend in the near term. To maintain positive momentum, prices need to close above 2500 and then target the 50% fib level at 2513.50. On the downside, the rejection of prices above 2500 could trigger losses back to the 10 DMA level at 2464 before targeting 2434. Buying pressure has been weak, and the indicators point to an acceleration of that momentum. The doji candle confirms market uncertainty. The break of support at 10 DMA could confirm the outlook for lower prices in the near-term.
