    Cotton Comment
    Cotton traded in a narrow range and ended mixed. Renewed export registration by India provided the initial market pressure. That appears to have run its course with improved U.S. economic reports providing outside influence. A disappointing employment report, showing only 119,000 jobs created in April, added pressure across the board. Long term the market still must deal with huge world stocks which will limit upside expectations.
