AFB Cotton Close: Ended Mixed

Cotton

Cotton closed mixed as the market couldn’t extend yesterday’s gains even with positive outside market influence. Today, the outside markets just limited downside pressure. There isn’t enough evidence of improving world economics to give cotton a big boost. Huge world stocks will limit upside potential.
