AFB Cotton Close: Market Moves Higher in Response to Indian Announcement
Cotton closed higher as the market responded to an announcement by India. It appears they will allow earlier sales that were in limbo after an export ban was put in place. Shipment of this cotton will be completed by May 7. Once that is completed it appears the U.S. might have greater export opportunities. However, upside potential remains limited at this time.
