Huge Sugar Rally After Five Weeks of Losses

It will be interesting to see if there is any follow-through, since this was just a short-covering rally! This was truly a parabolic move. Parabolic up, parabolic down!

ICE raw sugar futures surged to post their largest daily
gain since November on a short-covering rally, while cocoa
futures sank under pressure from technical weakness and
expectations of ample supplies. 
    July raw sugar on ICE Futures U.S. jumped 0.54 cents,
or 3.2 percent, to settle at 16.78 cents per lb in
technically-driven dealings after prices sank to 16.17 cents on
Thursday, the lowest level for the front month since July 2010.
    It was the front month's steepest one-day gain in seven
months, pushing sugar to a weekly gain of about 2 percent after
five weeks of losses.
