Cotton

Cotton futures are 10 to 56 points higher on Friday. Total export commitments are still 16.8% above last year, but lost a little of their lead due to the slow sales week. Even with the USDA raising their projection for full year exports, commitments are still 108% of that number, compared to the average of 93%. Mills reduced their May on call sales position by 7,212 contracts in the week that ended 4/6, bringing the total for May down to 15,947 contracts. The USDA Adjusted World Price (AWP) was updated to 74.32 cents/lb, up 2.32 cents from the previous week. The Cotlook A index was up 25 points from the previous day at 93.05 cents/lb.
