Sugar prices on Wednesday retreated on weakness in crude oil and a slump in the Brazilian real. Crude oil prices on Wednesday fell more than -4%, which was negative for ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing toward sugar production rather than ethanol production, thus boosting sugar supplies. NY sugar is just above Monday’s 4-1/2 month low and London sugar is just above Monday’s 3-month low. The Brazilian real on Wednesday tumbled -1.63% against the dollar and is just above Monday’s record low of 4.791 reals/USD. The weaker real encourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers.
London White Sugar front month contract is trading at $361.80/tn whereas US Sugar front month contract is trading at 11.94/lb at the time of writing this update.
