Cotton Prices Lower Again

Bookmark and Share

Cotton Futures--- Cotton futures in the December contract is trading lower for the 2nd consecutive session down another 55 points at 67.20 as I was recommending a bullish position from around the 69.55 level getting stopped out after the USDA crop report around 68.50 taking a relatively small loss as prices continue to head lower.

The problem with cotton at the present time is ideal weather conditions are persistent in key cotton growing regions in the southern part of the U.S as 12 million acres also is too much as there don't look to be any weather problems ahead as prices look to retest the contract low around 66.00 in the coming weeks.

At the present time I'm not involved in this market as the chart structure is very poor as this had a bullish trend until that report was released sending prices limit down 300 points as that is why you must have an exit strategy as prices are much lower from the exit point.

Cotton prices are trading under their 20 and 100 day moving average as the grain market is now following cotton to the downside as everything looks very weak as I now have no soft commodity recommendations as they all faded lower after that very negative crop report.TREND: LOWER –CHART STRUCTURE: POOR
