Sugar #11 Futures Market News and Commentary

Sugar Market News and Commentary

March NY world sugar #11 (SBH19) on Wednesday closed up +0.04 (+0.31%) and March ICE London white sugar (SWH19) closed up +2.10 (+0.60%). Sugar prices finished higher Tuesday on strength in the Brazilian real against the dollar, which discourages exports by Brazil's sugar producers. Another positive for sugar is strength in Chinese sugar demand after the China's Customs General Administration reported that China 2018 sugar imports rose +22% y/y to 2.8 MMT. Gains were limited by weakness in crude oil prices that are negative for ethanol prices and may prompt Brazil's sugar mills to divert more cane crushing toward sugar production rather than ethanol production, thus increasing sugar supplies. In a supportive factor, the Indian Sugar Mills Association on Tuesday cut its 2018/19 sugar output estimate for India, the world’s second-biggest sugar producer, to 30.7 MMT from October's 31.75 MMT forecast. On the bearish side, Brazil's hydrous ethanol prices fell for a third straight week as ethanol prices fell to 1.6044 per liter in the week ended Jan 18, the lowest in 4 months. Sugar prices still have support from last Tuesday's data from Unica showing that 2018/19 Brazil Center-South sugar production through December was down -26.5% y/y at 26.339 MMT.
