In the International market a good demand was witnessed since a fortnight. Exporters yet anticipate that this would keep the prices firm in the upcoming week too. According to reports, Mar NY world sugar on Friday closed down -0.01 and Mar London white sugar #5 closed unchanged. Sugar prices were under pressure Friday on weakness in the Brazilian real and on a decline in crude oil prices. The Brazilian real on Friday dropped -0.69% to a 1-week low against the dollar, which encourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers. Crude oil prices fell more than -1% Friday, which was also negative for sugar, since weaker crude prices undercut ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing toward sugar production rather than ethanol production, thus increasing sugar supplies.
Indian indices ended after a lacklustre week. INR ended 31 paise lower at 71.12 versus the closing last week.
