Daily Cotton

A daily limit in cotton lifts prices to five-month highs, as prices are above their 38.2% Fibonacci level for the first time since mid-May. The 100 day MA was resistance for several weeks but with the assault above that pivot point yesterday, prices are now on the move, appreciating nearly 10% in the last four sessions. I expect to see a trade near 81 cents, and potentially as high as 85 in December futures, which would complete a 61.8% retracement. Moving forward, I will be looking for signs to sell into this strength …stay tuned.
