    Cotton Comment
    Cotton was rocked by ever increasing world stocks. The 2011/12 production is expected to exceed use by 6.73 million bales. That will push stocks to 13.75 million bales. Smaller U.S. plantings are expected to see a million acres more harvested than in 2011, with production up 1.43 million bales to 17 million. U.S. stocks are projected to rise to 4.9 million bales. Limit down moves left the cotton market dark red. December fell to 79.37 cents and further losses are probable.
