I Remain Bullish Cotton Prices

Bookmark and Share

Cotton Futures--- Cotton futures in the March contract are currently trading lower by 35 points at 72.93 consolidating the recent move up in price over the last 3 sessions as I have been recommending a bullish position from around the 70.50 level and if you took the trade the stop loss has been raised to 69.53 & in Wednesday's trade that will be raised to 69.88 as the chart structure improves on a daily basis as the monetary risk will be lowered.

Large managed funds are currently long about 70,000 contracts as they think prices are headed higher, but the 73 level has been extremely difficult to break & if that does happen you have to think that the bullish momentum would continue in the short term.

The main reason for the recent run-up in prices is the fact that there is strong demand for cotton at the present time as harvest is almost completed in the southern part of the United States as bullish fundamental news has finally pushed prices higher so continue to play this to the upside.

I will be recommending another bullish position once the chart structure tightens up later this week so keep a close eye on this market especially on any price retracement as many of the commodity sectors are lower across the board today due to the fact that the U.S dollar is up about 40 points.

Prices are still trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average as the trend is higher coupled with the fact that the volatility has also increased as that has been the problem with the commodities this year as the volatility has been very low but is starting to break out of that shell.
