According to reports, on Friday sugar prices settled mixed with London sugar at a 1-week high. London sugar gained on concern that the surging Covid pandemic in India may disrupt its harvest and sugar exports after the number of cases rose above 1 million, the third-most in the world behind the U.S. and Brazil. NY sugar gave up its gains Friday and turned lower on weakness in the Brazilian real that fell -0.84% against the dollar. The weaker real encourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers. Sugar prices have recently seen downward pressure from weak demand.
London White Sugar front month contract is trading at $352.60/tn, whereas US Sugar front month contract is trading at 11.68/lb at the time of writing this update.
