    Cotton Comment
    Cotton was steady to firm, registering small across the board gains. Good crop progress and large world stocks are limiting upside potential. Smaller plantings in the U.S. and China and perhaps other areas suggest a smaller world crop in 2012. It will take a while to work off over 62 million bales of projected world carry over.
