Cotton #2 Futures Market News and Commentary

Cotton Post Turnaround Tuesday Bounce

Cotton prices posted 15 to 109 point gains on Tuesday, as futures got a bounce on weaker conditions. Outside factors were helpful, with crude oil up $1.30 and over $80/barrel. The markets will be taking the day off on Wednesday in observation of Juneteenth.

NASS reported condition ratings slipping down 2% on the week at 54% gd/ex, as the overall score via the Brugler500 index was down 7 points to 346.
