NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures edged lower on the day, causing the market to close at 19.66. The stochastics are falling, with %K in the oversold, and the MACD diff is negative and remained unchanged for the last couple of days, struggling to point out an outlook in the near term. To confirm the outlook of higher prices, futures need to close back above 20.00 and then target 20.09. The 10 DMA is closing in and supporting prices on the upside. On the downside, a break below the 19.44 level could set the scene towards 19.00. The narrow candle body with long upper and lower wicks points to market uncertainty about the direction of the move, and the futures need to break above 40 DMA to confirm the outlook for higher prices.
Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures
Ldn sugar futures edged higher yesterday as intraday trading saw prices close at 499.20. The stochastics are converging on the upside, with the %K/%D about to cross near the oversold territory, and the MACD diff is negative and converging. A break of the 40 DMA level at 489.49 could trigger losses through 482.60, with the tertiary level at 480. On the upside, a break above 10 DMA at 501.66 could set the scene for bullish momentum. After the last session’s market indecisiveness – the spinning top formation – as prices struggle above 10 DMA, a break above this level would confirm the indicators for higher prices in the near term.

NY coffee futures softened yesterday after breaching the support of 40 DMA. The market closed at 184.45. The stochastics continue to soften, with %K in the oversold territory, and the MACD diff is negative and diverging, suggesting we could see lower prices in the near term through the support of 180. A break below this level would bring into play the trend support at 178.30, which could set the scene for the 38.2% fib level at 174.74 in the longer term. On the upside, futures need to gain back above 40 DMA at 187.86 in order to confirm upside momentum. This could trigger further gains towards the 10 DMA at 191.08; strengthening the upside trend in the long run. A longer lower wick, where most of the trading took place in the upper ranges, points to an appetite for lower prices, however, prices need to break below the current support level to confirm the outlook.
