AFB Cotton Close: Moderately Lower

Cotton Comment
Cotton was modestly lower today. China’s larger than expected plantings weighed on the market. However, it should be noted that an almost 10% cut in plantings will mean China will have to import more cotton, or use part of their stocks. The size of the U.S. crop, which is a big question, will be a major factor in whether this market can move higher. December resistance is layered in 3 cents intervals beginning at 91 cents.
