So where do we go from here? Yes The irony is that by being bearish and therefore buying almost all cotton ‘on-call’ in recent months, mills have created a potentially bullish monster! There are now nearly 10 million bales that have been bought but not priced yet and this represents a tremendous amount of buying power. The hope is of course that the specs will oblige and eventually sell out of their 11 million bales net long position, which would allow mills to fix in a falling market. But what if speculators were to sit tight? _*The current situation reminds us of the old saying “when in a hole, stop digging”, yet week after week we see mills digging themselves deeper into trouble. Maybe the market will be kind enough to give the trade its much hoped for 3-4 cents correction, but we have that uneasy felling that the current setup is an accident waiting to happen and that the next big move is going to be a nasty short-covering rally!

Traders tweaked positions ahead of the supply-demand report. Weekly export sales topped expectations by a wide margin and boosted commitments to 66% of the forecast. Shipments reached 26% of the 2016-17 projection. Duane Howell DTN Cotton
