International: Sugar prices on Wednesday sold off sharply with NY sugar at a 1-1/2 year low on weakness in crude oil and the Brazilian real. Crude oil fell moderately Wednesday and is just above Monday’s 18-year low, which is bearish for ethanol prices and may encourage Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing toward sugar production rather than ethanol production, thus boosting sugar supplies. Ethanol prices are also seeing downward pressure after Brazil’s two largest fuel distributors on Monday declared force majeure on purchases of Brazil ethanol due to weak fuel demand.
London White Sugar front month contract is trading at $336.10/tn whereas US Sugar front month contract is trading at 10.07/lb at the time of writing this update.
