White Sugar #5 Futures Market News and Commentary

Sugar Market News and Commentary

March NY world sugar #11 (SBH19) this morning is down -0.05 (-0.40%) and March ICE London white sugar (SWH19) is down -0.40 (-0.12%). Sugar prices remain on the defensive after last Thursday's report from researcher Marex Spectron warned unless crude oil rallies, sugar's upside will be capped by lower ethanol parity in Brazil. Weaker ethanol prices may prompt Brazil's sugar producers to divert more cane-crushing toward sugar production than ethanol production, which will boost sugar supplies. Losses in sugar prices this morning were limited as crude oil prices gained, which benefits ethanol prices, and as the Brazilian real strengthened against the dollar. Sugar still has underlying support from last Tuesday's data from Unica showing that Brazil 2018/19 Center-South sugar production through Nov was 25.761 MMT, down -25.8% y/y, and that the percent of cane crushing for sugar output fell to 35.71% from 47.12% y/y while cane crushing for ethanol production rose to 64.29% from 52.88% y/y.
