According to reports, on Wednesday New York sugar and London Sugar prices rallied supported by a jump in crude oil prices. Higher crude oil prices benefit ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing toward ethanol production rather than sugar production, thus curbing sugar supplies. Sugar also moved higher on strength in the Brazilian real. The real on Wednesday rose +0.88% to a 2-week high against the dollar as it attempted to stay above last Thursday’s record low of 5.970 reals/USD. Strength in the real is bullish for sugar since it discourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers.
