NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar futures weakened yesterday as futures tested support at 10 DMA and closed at 19.62. The stochastics are seen converging, while %K is continuing to rise. The MACD diff is negative and converging, confirming the waning selling pressures. A break below 10 DMA at 19.62 would confirm the test of support 19.44. This may pave the way for lower prices to 19.00 – a longer-term support level. Conversely, the reaffirmation of support above 10 DMA would suggest higher prices and a close above 40 DMA at 20.04, setting the scene for higher prices towards 20.14. Yesterday’s candle body being below Monday’s suggests an appetite for lower prices and could trigger a break of support today. The indicators are pointing to a further decline in prices in the near term.
Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures
Ldn sugar futures softened yesterday as traders rejected prices above 520, prompting a close at 515. The RSI is falling, with %K/%D converging. The MACD diff has become positive, which is a buy signal, but the appetite has been marginal, which could cause the diff to dip back below the line. A break of support at the 10 DMA level at 511.06 could trigger losses to the support level of 40 DMA at 506.77. If this level holds firm, we could see prices trend higher back towards 520 in the near term. If prices break above 525, this could prompt a challenge of the 530 in the medium term. The 40 DMA has provided robust support for the futures, but in the near term, the indicators point to further downside momentum.
