Cotton Comment
Cotton received favorable treatment, closing higher for the 3rd day in a row. December futures closed above trendline resistance at 90 cents. Retracement objectives at 91.35 cents and 92.5 cents are probable upside targets if the market can maintain momentum. Acreage shifts to corn and/or soybeans may have given the market a reason to move higher. A potential 10% cut in Chinese plantings added to the positive undertone.
