Sugar signals buy opportunity

April 24, 2015 09:54 AM


Sugar has a buy signal on my daily chart today. This is the second buy signal I have had since the trend changed to about 2 weeks ago. My indicators suggest that sugar still is in a longer term down trend and is just below the 50-period moving average witch is pointed down.

Sugar needs to close above $13.34 then my indicators suggest sugar can go to $14.00. The weekly chart has a bottoming formation. This recent correction probably is attributed to India considering a sugar Stock pile to support prices. This may be the place to buy I would like to see July sugar stay above $12.45 and close above $13.43 to have this uptrend continue. 

Bullish Highlights

1.  My daily chart has 2 recent buy signals

2. M A C D almost crossed down but have stayed up (bullish)

3. Sugar has had a correction and has a fresh buy signal

4. Both daily and weekly have bottoming formations

5. Asia and Australia have had well below average rainy season that could affect sugar crop
