CME Cotton #2 Futures Market News and Commentary

Cotton Closes Triple Digits Lower

The Tuesday cotton market faded back triple digits after a bounce back out of the weekend. Old crop July was down by 121 points, while the new crop contracts gave back +2 cents.  Traders noted that the US crop was 54% planted as of Sunday, running ahead of the average pace for that date and offering hope of solid yields. There are, of course, still drought concerns for major production states like Texas. 

Online cotton sales from 5/23 were reported as 1,049 bales for an average gross price of 134.02 cents according to data from The Seam. The Cotlook A index for 5/23 was $1.60 60/100 after a 5.60 cent drop. USDA’s cotton AWP is 143.24 cents/lb for the week through Thursday. 

Jul 22 Cotton  closed at 141.54, down 121 points,

Dec 22 Cotton  closed at 123.78, down 220 points,

Mar 23 Cotton  closed at 119.5, down 228 points
