International Market: On Tuesday, sugar prices witnessed recovery from a 1-month low on strength in the Brazilian real. According to Paragon Global Markets, LLC, New York, USA, Today, the volume is only slightly better than yesterday. Commodity markets are getting a boost from the prospects of a possible stimulus plan in the US after the White House finally warmed up to the idea. Crude oil jumped after a rocket attack on northern Iraqi oil fields. More production comes from the south, so not a big impact. Gasoline stocks rose 6.44 million barrels according to the API report, the largest jump since April. That goes along with the news we saw of weak gasoline demand over the Thanksgiving holiday (worst since 1997) Dollar weaker as Poland and Hungary agree to the EU stimulus plan. So two supportive factors that could help push the market above 14.59, the downtrend line. We could see some light buy stops above, but unless we move above 14.91-15.00, we are still stuck in a range. Watching Brazil weather in Brazil and waiting to hear from Indonesia.”
