NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures gained ground yesterday as protracted buying pressure prompted a test of the 15.60 level once again to close on the front foot at 15.50. The stochastics are rising, and the %K/%D seen diverging towards the overbought territory, highlighting growing buying pressures. The MACD diff is positive and diverging. On the upside, futures need to break above 40 DMA at 15.67 and then target the 16.00; however, prices struggle above that level in recent weeks. On the downside, the break below 15.29 could set the scene for lower prices towards the support of 100 DMA at 15.05. A possible cross of 10 DMA above 100 DMA today could confirm a strong buy signal. We believe that prices will strengthen in the near term.
Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures
Ldn sugar futures consolidated yesterday as buying pressure triggered a close on the front foot at 430.80. 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 40 DMA at 440.24, but the market needs to take out immediate resistance at 436.70 beforehand, the level that futures struggled to take out in the recent sessions. On the downside, support around 427.60 is robust, and if this level does not hold firm, we could see prices retreat back through the 10 DMA at 425.63 before 420. Long upper wick points to the appetite for higher prices, however, futures need to take out 436.70 in order to confirm the outlook on the upside.

NY coffee futures rallied yesterday as protracted buying pressure triggered a close on the front foot above 40 DMA resistance at 131.95. The RSI is rising, while %K/%D are diverging on the upside, with %K edging in the overbought. The MACD diff is positive and diverging, outlining recent market growth. On the downside, a break back below the support level of 23.6% fib level at 129.51 could trigger losses back towards 10 DMA at 127.59, which would help confirm the outlook of lower prices in the longer term. On the upside, a complete break above 131 could trigger gains through resistance towards 135– March highs. The market rally has been strong in recent sessions, with three white soldiers formation confirming the strength of bull sentiment. The prices struggled above 40 DMA at 130.82 but yesterday’s breakthrough along with positive indicators confirm that we could see prices edge higher in the near term.

Superseding this level resistance stands at 23.6% fib level at 1385. On the downside, if futures fail into 1350, then we could see futures break back below 38.2% fib level at 1332.
