Cotton Futures-- Cotton futures in New York this week continued their bullish trend settling last Friday at 86.63 going out this Friday at 87.47 about 85 points higher hitting a 6 week high and still trading above its 20 and 100 day moving average which I consider a bullish technical indicator. I have been recommending buying cotton futures in the December contract last Friday when it broke out above 85.80 but cotton is very large contract with heavy risk so trade only 1 contract while placing a stop below the 10 day low at 84.07 risking around $800 per contract at the time if you are wrong and the trend changes to the downside.
