Cotton closed lower in consolidation trading and despite a very strong weekly export sales report from USDA. There are chances that the improved demand can continue, but many will be willing to sell if the sales drop this week.
Cocoa closed higher in consolidation trading. However, price action overall remains weak. Supplies from West Africa have increased and the market has more Cocoa to work with for at least the short term.
Futures closed higher, but well off the highs as Nielsen reported increased demand. It remains very cold in parts of the U.S., but Florida remains warm.The greening disease has affected crops in a big way and could cause reduced production for the next few years.
Orange juice closed lower as the weather in Florida remains generally very good. There is usually some speculative buying that appears at this time and as soon as the cold air starts to filter in from Canada, and cold air is coming again at the end of the week.
