International: According to reports, sugar prices on Wednesday closed sharply higher as a rally in crude and the Brazilian real sparked fund short-covering in sugar futures. Crude prices rose more than +20% Wednesday, which benefits ethanol prices and is supportive for sugar. Also, the Brazilian real jumped +2.06% to a 1-week high on Wednesday. The Brazilian real continues to see some recovery action after its recent plunge to last Friday’s record low of 5.7456 reals/USD. The stronger real is bullish for sugar since it discourages export selling by Brazil’s sugar producers.
