NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY futures surged higher yesterday as protracted buying pressure promoted futures to test appetite above 20, and the trend channel but the market closed at 19.94. The MACD diff is positive and diverging as the ADX, RSI, and stochastics are all rising helping to confirm positive momentum. The trend channel held firm and this could trigger losses back to 19.50. However, protracted buying pressure yesterday could see another break of 20 today, and a break above the trend channel. We expect prices to remain on the upside in the near term.

Ldn futures were well supported yesterday as prices broke above key resistance at 482.60 to close at 488.40. The MACD diff is positive and diverging, as the stochastics and RSI are rising. The bullish candle and breakthrough 482.60, has helped to confirm the ascending triangle and long term upward trend. The full candle on the upside indicates higher prices and the 500 resistance level is a key psychological level. Conversely, lack of appetite above 485 could trigger losses back towards 480 and then 471. We anticipate momentum to remain on the front foot.
