NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures

NY sugar futures gained ground yesterday but struggled above 10 DMA once again to close at 19.75. The stochastics are beginning to rise, with the %K/%D edging higher out of the oversold, as the MACD diff is negative and converging on the upside. This suggests we could see a further bullish momentum in the near term, with prices edging towards 20.00 before testing the 20.14 level. The Futures, however, need to break above both the 10 and 40 DMAs levels at 19.84 and 19.87, respectively. On the downside, the market found support at 19.44, and if the prices break through this level, we could see a retracement back through 19.00. The bullish candle with a narrow body and long upper and lower wicks after a similar bearish candle point to uncertainty to break out of the current support and resistance.

Conversely, appetite for prices above 510.10 could trigger a test of resistance at 521.20, the recent highs. A doji candle after the three bearish candles signals uncertainty about the outlook for lower prices, and the futures need to take out the 10 DMA to confirm the downside momentum.

Quarterly Metals Report – Q4 2021

The global macro picture is starting to present some downside risks in the near term as China's economy is set to slow further and supply-chain bottlenecks continue to cap growth. New orders and new export orders in China are contractionary, and we expect demand in Q4. Order backlogs and lead times for products will continue in Q4, limiting growth, and real consumption is weaker than it looks. Higher costs from shipping, raw materials and energy will take their toll on the consumer, and we expect end-user demand to suffer. The final piece of the jigsaw is the reduction in stimulus from central banks and how that will impact financial markets, bond yields, and the dollar has rallied while stocks corrected, but what will this trend continue?
