Thursday would ordinarily see USDA’s weekly sales and exports data, but that data has been delayed until Friday morning. Even with the minimal participation of China, sales have been running brisk. Also Friday morning, the U.S. jobs data from the Labor Department will come out. This report will weigh heavy on the Dow Jones and the U.S. dollar.
Wednesday’s estimated volume was 17,500.
December cotton settled $.8171, down 107 points, March was $.8211, down 97 points, and Dec. 19 finished $.7771, down 29 points.
