Sugar prices retreated on Friday and posted 1-week lows on weakness in crude oil prices. Mar WTI crude fell -2.8% Friday to a 2-3/4 month low. Weaker crude prices undercut ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing to sugar production rather than ethanol production, this boosting sugar supplies. A rally in the dollar index on Friday to 1-1/2 month high also fueled long liquidation pressure in sugar futures. An extremely large net-long position held by funds makes the sugar market vulnerable to long liquidation pressure. London White Sugar front month contract is trading at $394.90/tn whereas US Sugar front month contract is trading at 14.14/lb at the time of writing this update.
