Sugar Quarterly Q3 2019
As of mid-September, NY futures (basis Oct) are struggling to keep above USc 11/lb, with March 20 futures dipping below USc 12/lb.

Although the deficit we project for the new international 2019/20 crop year has deepened slightly to 5.2m metric tons, it needs to be remembered that this deficit represents a photograph of the projected situation at the end of September 2020, i.e. it is still a year away. 2019/20 will begin in October 2019 with high stock levels.
