NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures
NY sugar prices failed into the 50% Fib level yesterday and the 100 DMA at 18.95, the market closed at 18.78. The indicators are declining and are oversold with the RSI rising. The MACD diff is negative and starting to converge and this could be due to the upside tails indicating improving buying pressure. However, repeated rejection of prices above the 100 DMA and 19.00 suggests lack of appetite for prices above this level. We expect to see lower prices back towards 18.44. A break of support at this level would confirm the lower highs lower lows environment. We anticipate lower prices in the near term.

The indicators are negative with the stochastics falling further into oversold and the MACD diff is also negative, this combination suggests lower prices in the near term and a break of support of the 40 DMA. This would confirm the rejection of 540 and the negative indicators. Secondary support stands at 520, the 100 DMA is rising and will provide robust support in the medium term. On the upside, futures need to gain a footing above 540 and trigger gains towards 547.90.

Upside momentum has waned with rallies being sold but if prices break 240, this would confirm the inverted head and shoulders.

Ldn coffee prices were supported yesterday as intraday trading caused futures to close at 2101. The indicators are rising, back above neutral territory, the MACD diff is neutral but the RSI is also neutral. Rallies have been sold in recent sessions and we expect the same to be the case in the coming sessions. The volumes yesterday were steady suggesting appetite for prices but the longer term trend suggests the market is in a long term descending triangle. Lack of appetite for prices above 2100 would set the scene for lower prices towards 2010.
