AFB Cotton Close: Taking A Shellacking

Cotton

Cotton is taking a shellacking. Yesterday’s limit decline appears to be just a prelude to what could happen. December futures closed just above 76 cents. World stocks grew in yesterday’s report and with a 2012 crop that is expected to exceed use will move higher. USDA projected 2012/13 world stocks of 73.75 million bales. The cure for low prices is low prices. This should start cotton on the road to regaining lost market share.
