CANE in Focus    

CANE follows an index which tracks the daily changes of a weighted average of the closing prices for three futures contracts for sugar that are traded on ICE Futures US. The expense ratio of the fund is 1.79% (see all Agricultural ETFs here).

Why the Move

There was a steep spike in sugar prices in the international market on Friday, following a prediction of a sharp supply shortfall. As per various sources, dismal crop conditions in key sugar producing Asian countries and lowered production prospects in India, the world’s second largest producer, flared up deficit concerns and pushed up prices.
