Oil on the Boil

Crude oil prices fell yesterday as expectations of weaker demand and a strong U.S. dollar ahead of a potentially large interest rate increase balanced supply concerns.

Oil came under pressure from a strong dollar, which makes dollar-denominated commodities more expensive for other currency holders, ahead of a Federal Reserve meeting next week that could hike interest rates by a jumbo 100 basis points.

The weak growth in oil demand would further grind to a halt in the fourth quarter.

Crude has dropped substantially after a surge close to its all-time highs in March after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine added to supply concerns, pressured by the prospects of recession and weaker demand.

New clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan, an oil producer, linked to a decades-old dispute between the ex-Soviet states has further raised another risk to supplies.

Sweet News for Sugar Stocks

India is poised to allow 5 m tons of sugar exports in the first tranche for the new marketing year beginning October.

Sugar output for 2022-23 would hover around 36 m tons, like current year.

In the current marketing year, India has capped sugar exports at 11.2 m tonnes, to hold down domestic prices after mills sold record volumes on the global market.

The mills’ carryover stockpiles from the previous season are anticipated to reach 6 million tonnes on October 1, 2022, down from 8 m tonnes a year earlier, when the next season starts.

Around 27.5 m tonnes of sugar are used domestically in India, and during the 2022-2023 growing season, mills plan to divert 4.5 m tonnes of that amount to ethanol production. A minimum of 6 m tonnes of sugar will also be held aside by mills as yearly carryover reserves.

This sent sugar stocks up to 5% higher on Thursday.

Shares of Ugar Sugar Works, Dhampur Sugar Mills, and KCP sugar & industries rose up to 5%.
