Cotton futures were down a sharp 167 to 226 points in most front months on Wednesday. Selling came from the continued Chinese trade dispute, as President Trump released list of another $200 billion Chinese goods to target for a 10% tariff. Hearings on the list are expected to be in the Aug 20-23 time frame. This comes less than a week after both countries implemented tariffs on $34 billion of each other’s goods, including US cotton. Pressure was also apparent from strength in the US dollar. The weekly Export Sales report is back on the schedule for Thursday morning. The Cotlook A index was up 250 points from the previous day on July 9 to 94.60 cents/lb. The weekly USDA AWP is 74.59 cents/lb through Thursday.
