Cotton Fading through Midday

Midday cotton futures are fading with triple digit (buy the rumor, sell the fact) losses out of the USDA report. Cotton’s cash average price was 6 cents stronger to 90 c/lb in the USDA update. 

USDA trimmed cotton’s yield by 24 lbs/acre. Output was seen at 18m bales, after a 510k bale cut. The demand was UNCH from the Sep estimates reducing carryover to 3.2m bales. That level implies a Stx/Use ratio of 17.8%. 

Sales on The Seam for the week through Thursday totaled 6,387 bales for a weighted average price of 105.5 cents/lb. USDA’s weekly Cotton Market Review noted 105 cents/lb as the average price for the 9,616 bales sold through the week. The Cotlook A index was 80 points weaker to 119.25 cents/lb. The AWP for cotton is now 91.81 cents/lb, up from 83.92 last week.

May 22 Cotton  is at 104.59, down 156 points,

Jul 22 Cotton  is at 102.41, down 169 points
