NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures

NY sugar futures failed into 10 DMA on Friday as prices closed at 15.08. The stochastics are falling, and the MACD diff is positive and converging, pointing to an approaching sell signal. The rejection of higher prices may prompt a break back towards 15.00, a subsequent breach of this level could trigger losses towards trend support 14.75, confirming an ascending triangle formation. On the upside, a break of 15.29 and 15.50 may prompt futures to retest 15.80. A subsequent breach of this level would prompt prices to regain upside momentum. Indicators point to a more bearish outlook in the near term.

Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures

Lnd sugar futures buckled on Friday as protracted selling pressure triggered a close on the back foot below 10 DMA at 429.80. The stochastics are falling, and RSI is also falling. The MACD diff is positive and converging, confirming growing selling pressure; this could set the scene for lower prices towards the 38.2% fib level at 423.59. A break below this level would confirm the outlook of lower prices, and a three black crows pattern formation. On the upside, a break above 10 DMA at 435.01 resistance level and reaffirmation of support above 440 could strengthen the trend on the upside in the long run. Futures need to take out the DMA in order to confirm the outlook of higher prices. The long body and a long downside wick point to an increased appetite for lower price and indicators confirm the outlook for more downside momentum in the near term.

NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures

NY coffee futures edged lower on Friday as prices closed at 126.20. The indicators continue to favour the downside, as %K/%D converged on the downside, confirming growing selling pressures. The MACD is negative and diverging. A break below the 76.4% fib level at 125.80 would bring into play the 40 DMA support level at 124.30. Prices have been relatively well supported below the trendline, and in order to indicate an improvement of market sentiment on the upside, futures need to gain a footing above 129.50 and then target the 130 in the near term. The repeat of long bearish candles immediately after bullish doji candles points to market uncertainty, with a growing appetite for lower prices. The break below the 10 DMA would confirm the outlook for lower prices.

Ldn 2nd Month Coffee Futures

Lnd coffee prices declined on Friday after prices rejected resistance at 1320. The market closed at 1310. The stochastics continue to weaken, with %K crossing below the %D, and MACD diff is negative and diverging, suggesting we could see lower prices in the near term. A break below 1310 could set the scene for a test of support at 1300, confirming the descending triangle. On the upside, a break above 10 DMA level at 1330 could set the scene for higher prices through 1340 and 100-day MA at 1355. Three black crows pattern formation confirms indicators' outlook for lower prices in the near term.

NY 2nd Month Cocoa Futures

NY cocoa futures softened on Friday after prices failed above the 2500 level, prompting a close on the back foot at 2486. The stochastics are rising and converging, and the MACD diff is also converging on the downside, outlining the weakness in the market. Selling pressure has been strong; however, Friday’s long lower wick suggests rejection of lower prices. The 10 DMA at 2479 level has been robust in the last couple of sessions; however, we do not expect this level to remain to hold. A break below this level could set the scene for 2450. Alternatively, if prices can gain a footing above the 2500 levels, the bulls could then target 50% fib level at 2513.50 in order to regain upside conviction. We anticipate prices to remain on the back foot in the near term.

Ldn 2nd Month Cocoa Futures

Lnd cocoa futures edged lower on Friday after prices failed above 2320, prompting a close at 2303. The stochastics are falling, with %K/%D edging out of the oversold, and the MACD diff is positive and converging, confirming the outlook for lower prices. To confirm the bearish indicators and rejection of prices above 2320, futures need to take out support at 40 DMA of 2299 and then target 10 DMA at 2293, reaffirmation of resistance could trigger losses through 2190. On the upside, the 40 DMA support needs to hold and then test 2350 in order to confirm the outlook of higher prices. We expect 40 DMA support to remain robust today, there is an appetite for prices around the longer-term DMA.

Quarterly Metals Report – Q3 2021

COVID cases are rising across the globe as the delta variant spreads, this is causing some nervousness in financial markets, especially with the higher inflation rhetoric. Commodity prices have fallen since the Fed changed their tune inflation, the dollar has stabilised which has also been a headwind to prices. The summer months are traditionally quieter for metals demand which could prompt metals to consolidate. If the delta variant continues to spread, we may see higher levels of stimulus for longer. As things stand stimulus levels are set to be tapered and this could be brought forward if inflation remains high. We expect markets to remain volatile but on lower volume through the summer months.
