According to reports, on Monday sugar prices closed lower as they tracked crude prices. New York sugar initially posted a 2-3/4 month high in overnight trading when crude prices climbed to a 3-month high. However, crude prices relinquished their gains on Monday morning and fell more than -3%, weighing on sugar prices. Weaker crude prices are negative for ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing to sugar production rather than ethanol production, thus boosting sugar supplies. A supportive factor for sugar was strength in the Brazilian real, which climbed +1.81% against the dollar Monday to a 2-1/2 month high. The stronger real discourages export selling from Brazil’s sugar producers and is positive for sugar.
