cmdty Insider - White Sugar #5 Market Commentary


March NY world sugar #11 (SBH19) on Tuesday closed down -0.34 (-2.66%) and March ICE London white sugar (SWH19) closed down -5.80 (-1.69%). Sugar prices dropped to 1-1/2 month lows on Tuesday as a stronger dollar induced long liquidation in most commodities, including sugar. Also, the nearly -7% plunge in crude oil prices on Tuesday undercut ethanol on concern that weak crude prices will prompt Brazil's sugar mills to divert more cane to making sugar instead of ethanol, thus boosting sugar supplies. Sugar prices have underlying support from ISO's cut last Thursday in its 2018/19 sugar surplus estimate to 2.2 MMT (from an Aug estimate of 6.7 MMT) and its global 2017/18 sugar surplus estimate to 7.3 MMT (from an Aug estimate of 8.6 MMT).
