  • Sugar prices extend the downward trend with the MAY20 ICE#11 contract closing the week at 11.70 USc/lb - down 10.1%. 
  • The Brazilian Real continued to reach new record lows of 5.0258 USD/BRL on Thursday (last week), encouraging Brazilian exports of sugar. 
  • Crude oil lost almost 50% of its value from its high in February of $54.66 a barrel down to a low on Monday of $27.34, this may push Brazilian mills to begin producing more sugar over ethanol.
