    Sugar

    • It was a turbulent week for raw sugar futures ahead of the annual New York sugar week, with heavy fund selling leading the market into the abyss.
    • Following last week’s negative price action, the market appears to have stabilised at technical support levels near 11.70 USc/lb.
    • As a bounce back above 12 USc/lb looms, large Thai producer pricing likely sits above 12.50 USc/lb, capping too much optimism.
