Cotton #2 Futures Market News and Commentary

Cotton Looks to Extend Tuesday Strength

Cotton is off to a 26 to 63 point higher start this morning. Cotton prices ended Tuesday with 1.3% to 1.8% gains led by the thinly traded October contract. For March that was a 112 point gain on a Turnaround Tuesday. The FOMC will announce their interest rate decision this afternoon, with most analysts expecting either a 25 or 50 basis point increase.

USDA researchers in Mississippi have developed 4 cotton varieties that are flame retardant and self extinguishing.  That could potentially eliminate additions of retardant chemicals to various textile lines.   

The Cotlook A Index was 40 points weaker for 1/30 to 102 cents. The AWP for cotton is 75.05 cents per pound.
