According to reports, on Wednesday sugar prices retreated with NY sugar at a 1-week low and London sugar at a 3-1/2 week low. A slump in crude oil prices along with a sharp drop in the Brazilian real against the dollar on Wednesday fueled fund selling in sugar futures. Crude oil prices on Wednesday fell by more than -5%, which undercut ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing to sugar production rather than ethanol production, thus boosting sugar supplies. The Brazilian real on Wednesday tumbled more than -3% against the dollar, which encourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers.
London White Sugar front month contract is trading at $354.00/tn, whereas US Sugar front month contract is trading at 11.69/lb at the time of writing this update.
