NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures

NY sugar futures edged lower on Friday after prices broke below the 18.00 support, prompting a close at 17.80. The stochastics are falling, with %K/%D diverging on the downside and now oversold, and the MACD diff is negative and diverging, confirming the outlook on the downside. To confirm the bearish indicators and rejection of prices above 18.00, futures need to take out 17.66 before 17.29. On the upside, futures need to close back above 18.00 and then test 10 DMA at 18.42 in order to confirm the outlook of higher prices. A longer candle body alongside a longer upper wick indicates that traders might be settling into the support level. And while the stochastics are diverging on the downside, the %K is in the oversold, so we would expect to see a trend reversal in the near term.

Ldn 2nd Month Sugar Futures

Ldn sugar futures broke below the support of 481.50 on Friday as prices closed at 479.80. The stochastics are falling, with %K/%D diverging on the downside in the oversold territory. The MACD is negative and diverging. The rejection of higher prices may prompt a complete break below the support at 477, a subsequent breach of this level could trigger losses towards 471.80. On the upside, a break of 481.50 may prompt futures to retest last week’s highs at 494.40. A subsequent breach of this level would prompt prices to regain upside momentum in the near term. Longer upper wick points to waning selling pressures and a possible confirmation of support at these levels. The oversold indicators confirm a change of trend in the near term.

NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures

NY coffee futures gained ground on Friday as protracted buying pressure prompted a breach of the 40 DMA level for the first time in weeks to close on the front foot at 238.30. The stochastics are rising, and the %K/%D is seen diverging on the upside towards the oversold. The MACD diff converged on the upside, a strong buy signal. To confirm the bullish candles, futures need to break above 240 and then target 244.75. On the downside, the break back below 40 DMA at 233.14 could set the scene for lower prices towards the support of the 10 DMA level at 229.35. A strong candle body that broke above 40 DMA alongside bullish indicators point towards further strengthening in the near term.

Ldn 2nd Month Coffee Futures

Lnd coffee futures edged marginally higher on Friday, but the bullish momentum was not strong enough to break above 10 DMA, and futures closed at 2316. The stochastics continue to fall, yet seen converging, as %K is seen tailing off near oversold territory, and the MACD diff is negative and diverging. The rejection of prices at 10 DMA at 2344 has formed a candle with a narrow body but a long wick on the upside, suggesting markets lack of appetite for higher prices. If prices were to break above this level, this could trigger a test of 2381, the recent highs. To confirm the shooting star formation, futures need to take out 40 DMA at 2292 and then robust support at 2279. A break below this level would confirm the outlook for lower prices.

To maintain positive momentum, prices need to close above 2567 and then target resistance at 2600. On the downside, the rejection of prices above that level could trigger losses back to the 61.8% fib level at 2475 before targeting 2436. The strong bullish candle body and indicators pointing to growing bullish momentum are driving our belief that the prices will strengthen in the near term.

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?
