Cotton

Cotton futures are mostly 136 to 161 points in the red at midday. Pressure is evident from the continued trade dispute, as President Trump released list of another $200 billion Chinese goods to target for a 10% tariff. Hearings on the list are expected to be in the Aug 20-23 time frame. This comes less than a week after both countries implemented tariffs on $34 billion of each other’s goods, including US cotton. The weekly Export Sales report is back on the schedule for Thursday morning. The Cotlook A index was up 250 points from the previous day on July 9 to 94.60 cents/lb. The weekly USDA AWP is 74.59 cents/lb through Thursday.
