    Closing commodity reports from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Commodity Staff.

    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.
