NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
Sugar prices declined yesterday after failing into to resistance at 20.38, prompting a close at 20.18. The stochastics are still trending higher and stand in overbought territory but are starting to converge suggesting waning buying pressure. The MACD diff is positive but momentum is also waning following yesterday's session activity. Volumes are high but increased into the close as prices edged lower. The upside trend is on the upside but the rejection of 20.38 may set the scene for a correction back towards 19.75 or trend support to reaffirm the trend. A break through 20.38 would confirm the ascending triangle. We expect a correction in the near term back towards trend support.
