Cotton Stuck In A 7 Week Consolidation

Bookmark and Share

Cotton Futures---Cotton futures in the December contract is currently trading at 68.20 while settling last Friday in New York at 68.80 up about 60 points for the trading week still stuck in a very tight 7 week consolidation waiting for some fresh fundamental news to dictate short-term price action.

Traders are awaiting next week's USDA crop report which could send volatility back into this market as a frost in West Texas looks like it damaged some of the crop coupled fact that we had floods after the hurricanes which should have had some impact on cotton yields, but we will find out next week on the exact situation.

Cotton prices are trading right at their 20 and 100 day moving average as the trend basically is mixed as I am not involved as I'm looking at a possible breakout above the 70.22 level as the chart structure is excellent and the risk/reward will be in your favor & if that level is breached which could possibly happen off the USDA crop report as the agricultural sectors have gone nowhere due to the fact that the U.S dollar is at a 14 week high coupled with the fact that we are in the midst of harvest which generally does keep a lid on prices. TREND: MIXED CHART STRUCTURE: EXCELLENT
