NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar weakened yesterday as moderate selling pressure triggered a close below 100 DMA level of 14.95; the market closed at 14.85. The stochastics are falling moderately, and %K/%D is trading in the oversold, still diverging. The MACD is negative, however, lacks conviction, and the doji candle formation supports market indecisiveness. A break below 100 DMA is a strong sell signal, however, prices struggled below 14.75, and in order to confirm the continuation of bearish momentum, prices need to break below the current support at 14.75 and then 14.52. Conversely, a break back above 100 DMA resistance level could set the scene for a test of 10 DMA at 15.22. We expect prices to weaken further and remain on the back foot, however, a break below current support at 14.75 is needed to confirm that outlook.
