NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures softened yesterday after piercing the support level of 20.00. The market closed lower at 19.92. The stochastics are falling, but %K is seen edging higher in the oversold, and the MACD diff is negative and diverging. The reaffirmation of support at 40 DMA at 19.53 could set the scene for higher prices back to test the 10 DMA at 20.40 level. On the downside, futures need to break below the support of 40 DMA in order to confirm the bearish trend towards 19.00. The long lower wick confirms the appetite for lower prices, but the market needs to break below the 40 DMA in the immediate term to confirm the outlook.
Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures
Ldn sugar futures weakened yesterday after breaking support of 500. The market closed at 497.20. The stochastics continue to soften, and the MACD diff is negative and diverging, suggesting we could see lower prices in the near term through support 40 DMA at 486.76. A break below this level would bring into play the 482.60, which could set the scene for support at 480 in the longer term. On the upside, futures need to gain back above 10 DMA at 505.30 in order to confirm upside momentum. The reaffirmation of support here could trigger gains towards the level at 511.40; this could strengthen the trend in the long run on the upside. A longer lower wick, where most of the trading took place in the upper ranges, points to further selling pressures; however, prices need to break below the current support level to confirm the outlook.
NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures
NY coffee futures declined yesterday as lack of appetite for higher prices helped to test the 40 DMA support; the market closed higher at 187.45. Stochastics are diverging on the downside, suggesting further selling momentum in the near term. MACD diff just converged on the downside, supporting the outlook for deteriorating prices. The last three days formed a three back crows pattern, a sign of an impending market downturn. The moderate selling pressure yesterday and a long lower wick point to an appetite for lower prices, but the support level at 40 DMA at 185.73 is robust. A break below this level could set the scene for a test of support at 180. On the upside, support around 23.6% fib level at 191.22 would help reaffirm the bullish trend in the near term up to trend resistance. We believe that the market lacks conviction, and prices should continue to fall.

The MACD is positive and converging, pointing to lower prices in the near term. The rejection of higher prices may prompt a break back towards support at 10 DMA at 2053, a subsequent breach of this level could trigger losses towards 2000. On the upside, a break of 2092 and 2100 may prompt futures to gain bullish momentum in the near term. Long upper and lower wicks point to an appetite out of the current trading range; however, the future needs to break completely below 10 DMA to confirm the outlook.

The stochastics are beginning to converge as %K/%D continue to edge towards the oversold, but the MACD diff is positive and diverging, painting a mixed picture. Futures need to break below the support at 2675 and then target 10 DMA at 2621 to confirm the downside momentum. On the upside, the 2675 support needs to hold and then test 2700 in order to confirm the outlook of higher prices. We expect prices to weaken in the near term.

The MACD diff is negative and converged on the downside, suggesting we could see lower prices in the near term.

The market needs to take out support at the 10 DMA at 2482 level and then 2450, this could trigger losses back towards the robust support level of 2400. On the upside, if prices find support above 2531, the market could set the scene for higher prices to 2550. We expect prices to retreat in the near term.
