AFB Cotton Close: Higher on Technical Buying

Cotton Comment
Cotton was higher as technical buying provided follow through on yesterday’s gains. March futures moved above 75 cents and are less than a penny below the 38% retracement objective of 76.14 cents. Export movement has been good, as evidenced by yesterday’s upward bump of 200,000 bales in the supply demand numbers. That is a positive, but a long ways from solving the world supply situation.
