NY 2nd Month Sugar Futures

NY Sugar 28102022

NY sugar softened marginally as the futures closed at 16.79. The stochastics continue to fall, with %K now in the oversold territory, and the MACD diff is negative and diverging, suggesting we could see prices fall further in the near term to 16.68. If this level is breached, the next line of support is at 16.50. On the upside, if the resistance at 17.00 is broken above, this could set the scene for prices to 10 DMA at 17.43 before 40 DMA at 17.63, which provides robust resistance levels for the prices. A candle body with no shadows suggests continued conviction for more downside pressure, and we expect prices to be supported by 16.68 in the near term.

To confirm the bearish indicators and rejection of prices above 500, futures need to take out support at 480 and then target 471.80. On the upside, futures need to close above 487.60 and then target 495.80 in order to confirm the outlook of higher prices towards 500.

NY 2nd Month Coffee Futures

NY Coffee 2810222

NY coffee futures held their nerve yesterday after testing the support level of 175. The market closed at 176.95. The stochastics are falling, with %K/%D just diverging on the downside in the oversold, while the MACD diff is negative and converging, painting a mixed picture for the price outlook. The reaffirmation of support at 175 could set the scene for higher prices back to test the 10 DMA level at 185.58, confirming an inverse hammer formation. On the downside, futures need to break below the current support in order to suggest a continuation of the bearish trend to 170, a break below this level would suggest strong conviction on the downside. The longer upper wick with a narrow body suggests that the prices above 180 were rejected to close lower.

On the downside, futures need to break below the support at 1870 before falling to test the 1827 level, the August 2021 lows. We expect the downside momentum to slow in the near term.

NY 2nd Month Cocoa Futures

NY Cocoa 2810222

NY cocoa futures edged higher yesterday after testing 2300 once again to close at 2324. The stochastics are converging on the upside near-term oversold, and the MACD diff is negative and is converging on the upside slightly, suggesting lower prices in the near term before the change of trend. On the downside, futures need to take out support at 2300 and then target 2236. On the upside, futures need to close above 10 DMA at 2323 and then target the 40 DMA at 2335 to confirm the outlook on the upside to 2400. Prices have struggled below 2300 for the majority of October, and with the indicators being oversold, we expect this level to hold in the near term.

Ldn 2nd Month Cocoa Futures

Ldn Cocoa 28102022

Ldn cocoa futures opened lower on the day yesterday but managed to regain some of the strength to close at 1869. The stochastics continue to edge lower to the oversold, and the MACD is negative and flat, highlighting the possible change of trend in the near term. To suggest a continuation of the momentum on the downside, the futures need to break below the 1850 level completely before testing the 1837 level. Alternatively, support at current levels could trigger gains back to 1900 before 1930. A break of 50 DMA support suggests recent conviction on the downside, and we expect this level to cap the futures on the upside in the near term.
