NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures gained ground on Friday as appetite for prices at the upper trend channel prompting a close at 20.52. The stochastics are rising, the MACD diff is positive and diverging, as the RSI is also positive. Both the RSI and stochastics are overbought as the market has rallied above the upper trend channel. We expect futures to push higher in the neat term, and the psychological level on the upside is 21.00 before the long term fib level at 23.6% at 21.36. Conversely, lack of appetite above the upper trend channel cold trigger losses back to 20, before targeting the 38.2% fib level at 19.72. Momentum is on the upside and the bullish candles and breaches of resistance confirm this but we could see prices test support at 20.

Ldn sugar futures were well supported on Friday as prices broke through resistance at 500 and to close at 508.80. The stochastics are rising, stochastics are overbought and continue to rise, as the MACD diff is positive and diverging as the RSI is also overbought. The full candles on the upside and gaps higher indicate that futures will push higher in the near term. Conversely, on the downside lack of appetite for prices could trigger losses below 500, towards 482.60 in the longer term. We do not expect futures to change trend in the near term but futures could test appetite at 500.

NY coffee buckled on Friday as prices failed above the 23.6% fib level, the market closed at 185.75. The stochastics are starting to rise and push towards positive territory. The MACD diff is negative and converging suggesting we could see prices edge higher in the near term. The market needs to break above the 23.6% fib level to regain upside momentum, before targeting 195.35, and 200. On the downside, if selling pressure is carried into today, futures could retreat back towards 180 before targeting previous support at 174.50. Long term momentum is on the upside and we expect this to remain the case.

This could prompt a test of support at 1815 before targeting the 40 DMA at 1765. The long term trend is on the upside, and the bulls need to take out 1880 and then 1900 to regain upside momentum.

A break above 2675 and 2700 would help to confirm the double bottom at 2268. On the downside, if prices fail to gain a footing above 2600, this could prompt a correction back to 2514 in the near term.

Ldn cocoa futures gained ground on Friday as buying pressure closed at 2478. The stochastics are rising but the RSI is consolidating. The MACD diff is positive and still diverges suggesting higher prices. The rally has been robust in recent weeks and we expect this to continue in the near term. Futures broke above 2453 which was a double top and now the market targets 2500. A test of this level futures could test 2500 and this would form a head and shoulders. On the downside, rejection of prices above 2453 could trigger losses back to 2400. The 100 DMA is about to cross above the 40 DMA which is traditionally bullish.
