Where Are Cotton Prices Going ?

Bookmark and Share

Cotton Futures---Cotton futures in the December contract which is considered the new crop and is currently being grown in the southern part of the United States settled last Friday in New York at 67.07 while currently trading at 66.00 looking to retest the contract low which was hit on May14th at 65.25 in my opinion.

At the present time I am not involved in cotton as my only soft commodity recommendation is a bullish coffee trade as the chart structure is starting to improve in this commodity as we could be involved once again. Cotton prices are trading under their 20 and 100 moving average as the trend is to the downside as we have consolidated over the last month as I had been recommending a short position in the month of April when prices collapsed.

Weather conditions are ideal at the current time as planting is in full swing as the situation in cotton is very different from the situation in the grain market as the trade war with China and possibly with Mexico certainly is negative towards cotton prices in the short-term.

Traders are awaiting next week's crop report which should send volatility back into this market as the volatility at the current time is relatively low as that will not remain as we enter the summer months which generally expands volatility to the upside so keep a close eye on this market as we could be involved in next week's trade.
