According to sources, sugar prices on Monday settled sharply lower with NY sugar at a 4-1/2 month low and London sugar at a 3-month low on a plunge in crude prices and weakness of the Brazilian real. Crude oil on Monday slumped more than -24% to a 4-year low, which is harmful for ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing toward sugar production, thus boosting sugar supplies. Also, the Brazilian real on Monday continued to slump against the dollar, which spurred the selling of sugar futures. The real sank -2.14% against the dollar Monday and posted a record low of 4.791 reals/USD. A weaker real encourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers.
London White Sugar front month contract is trading at $357.40/tn whereas US Sugar front month contract is trading at 12.62/lb at the time of writing this update.
