International: According to reports, sugar prices on Thursday settled higher on support from early strength in crude oil prices and a sharp 5% rally in gasoline prices, although crude oil prices fell back during mid-afternoon. Stronger crude oil prices are positive for ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing toward ethanol production rather than sugar production, thus reducing sugar supplies.Sugar prices fell back from their best levels Thursday on weakness in the Brazilian real against the dollar. The real on Thursday fell -2.00% against the dollar and posted a new record low of 5.8744 reals/USD. The weaker real is bearish for sugar since it encourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers.
