Cotton #2 Futures Market News and Commentary

Cotton Showing Slight Gains on Friday Morning

The cotton market is trading higher to round out the week, with gains of 13 to 63 points this morning. Futures posted 7 to 113 point losses on Thursday. The death spiral liquidation continues for May, down 146 points, as longs get out before deliveries, with rest of the contracts following along. Crude oil futures had a wild night, down 83 cents this morning and $4.14 off the overnight highs after reports of several presumed Israeli strikes in Iran in response to the Iranian attack over the weekend on Israel. Iran reportedly downplayed the attacks, indicating there would be no retaliation in response, likely sending crude back lower.

Export Sales data saw some improvement, with old crop sales at 146,112 RB, a 9-week high as the recent drop in prices have incentivized buying. Much of that was to China, with 92,600 RB in sales. New Crop sales were 80,077 RB, the highest in 5 weeks. Shipments were not as good, with 266,732 RB exported, an 8-week low.
