Cotton Prices Stuck In 5 Week Consolidation

Bookmark and Share

Cotton Futures---Cotton futures in the December contract settled last Friday in New York at 81.99 while currently trading at 81.50 down about 50 points for the trading week experiencing high volatility due to the Hurricane Florence situation which is hitting South and North Carolina putting concerns on the cotton crop.

At the present time I'm sitting on the sidelines waiting for a break out to occur & if prices crack the 84.25 level I will be recommending a bullish position while then placing the stop loss under the 10 day low so be patient & let's see what next week's trade brings as we will start to see what type of damage was done to the cotton crop.

Estimates of this year's production numbers are slightly under 19 million bales as state the of Texas experienced a drought in certain areas as this will not be a record crop as I still have a bullish bias to the upside despite the fact that prices are still trading under their 20 and 100 day moving average as the short-term trend is lower in my opinion, but it really is mixed.

My only soft commodity recommendation is a bearish orange juice trade as I'm keeping a close eye on sugar and coffee both to the upside as cotton prices have now been stuck in a 5 week tight consolidation pattern as I think a breakout could happen possibly in next week's trade.
