NY sugar futures softened on Friday after piercing the support level of 17.66. The market closed higher at 17.67. The stochastics are rising, yet %K/%D just converged on the downside, and the MACD diff is positive, however lacks conviction. The reaffirmation of support at 10 DMA at 17.65 could set the scene for higher prices back to test the 17.91 level. On the downside, futures need to break below the support of 17.50 in order to confirm the bearish trend. Indeed, the 10 DMA support level has been tested and broken below marginally for the last couple of sessions, suggesting an appetite for prices below this level, however, struggled to break below the level. The long lower wick confirms this. The market needs to break below the 40 DMA at 17.26 in the near term to confirm the outlook.

The recent selling pressure suggests that we could see lower prices in the near term through the support of 452.80. A break below this level would bring into play the 449.60 level. On the upside, futures need to gain back above 10 DMA at 464.76 in order to confirm upside momentum.

The stochastics are falling, and the MACD diff is also negative and diverging, pointing to a near-term decline in prices. The ADX and DMI outline the outlook for deteriorating prices, yesterday’s bearish engulfing candle suggests lower prices. Prices need to break below support at 159.30 before targeting 158.50. Conversely, if support at 160 can hold firm, this could trigger gains to break the resistance at 10 DMA at 161.55. A breach of this level would confirm the outlook for higher prices, with gains seen towards 165.50. In the longer run, prices need to break below the upper trend channel. We expect the momentum to remain on the back foot.

Our analysts provide an in-depth analysis of the metals market and current macroeconomic conditions. The environment has weakened significantly as growth fears rise amid persistent high inflation. 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.
