Cotton Futures—Cotton futures in the July contract settled last Friday at 52.86 while currently trading at 55.44 up about 250 points for the trading week as prices are right near a 5 week high. Spring planting is currently underway in the southern part of the United States as weather conditions will dictate short-term price action for the next several months as the volatility will certainly expand especially if hot and dry weather conditions come about.
I have been recommending a bullish position from around the 55.50 level and if you took that trade continue to place the stop loss under the 10-day low standing at 52.00 as an exit strategy, however the chart structure will not improve for another 7 sessions so you will have to accept the monetary risk.
Several states have opened retail stores which should spark demand for cotton which would be a bullish fundamental factor that has been the main reason for these multi-year lows. Cotton prices are still trading above their 20-day but below their 100 day moving average as the trend is mixed to higher, but I do believe that the risk / reward is in your favor to take a bullish position.
CHART STRUCTURE: SOLID
