International Market: According to reports, sugar prices on Tuesday extended Monday’s losses with NY sugar falling to a 6-1/4 month low and London sugar sliding to a 4-1/2 month low. Bearish factors included weakness in the Brazilian real, a slump in crude oil prices, and concern about sugar demand.The Brazilian real on Tuesday dropped to a new record low against the dollar at 5.0832 reals/USD. The weaker real encourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers. Crude oil prices on Tuesday tumbled more than -5% to a new 4-year low, which is bearish for sugar. The plunge in crude oil prices is 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.
