July cotton settled at 139.42 cents, down 1.19 cents, December closed at 122.95 cents, down 1.38 cents and March 2023 finished at 118.73 cents, 0.81 cent lower; estimated volume was 21,363 contracts.

Spot July breached the $1.40 mark for the first time in 21 days and, given that its delivery is pending in three weeks. The contract is expected to slide even lower on call fixation and long liquidation.

As of the close Friday, spot July was down 2.85 cents for the week, down 6.21 cents thus far the month, but still up 31.54 cents on the year.

For December, it continues to hang on the West Texas weather forecasts. Right now, the one- to five-day outlook shows no rain, while six- 10-day does allow better rain chances.

Meanwhile, ICE has reverted cotton futures daily price limit to 5 cents per pound effective from start of trade on Tuesday, May 31.

USDA’s weekly Cotton Market Review showed the 1,832 bales sold at spot this week averaged 137.47 cents/lb.
