International Market: According to sources, sugar prices on Monday plunged with NY sugar at a 6-month low and London sugar at a 3-1/2 month low on weakness in the Brazilian real and on a slump in crude oil prices.The Brazilian real on Monday tumbled -3.08% against the dollar and posted a new record low. The weaker real encourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers.
Crude oil prices on Monday plunged by -9% and are just above last Monday’s 4-year low. The recent plunge in crude oil prices has been 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.
