International Market: According to reports, the week ended with sugar prices settling mixed. New York sugar prices were undercut by weakness in crude oil and the Brazilian real, however London sugar received a boost from weakness in GBP/USD. Crude oil prices fell nearly -2%, which was 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. Ongoing weakness in the Brazilian real is bearish for sugar prices. The real on Friday fell -0.15% against the dollar as it attempted to stay above last Thursday’s record low of 5.970 reals/USD. Weakness the real is bearish for sugar since it encourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers.
