Cotton :The hope that consumer demand for Cotton products will quickly return is not likely to be confirmed. Consumers have really been hurt economically due to stay at home orders imposed here and overseas and it will take some time for them to recover. As an example, Chinese stores have been open for several weeks but there has been no consumer rush to go to them and buy. The same is possible here and in Europe although the data so far is mixed in this regard. It is too dry in Brazil for good growth of the second crop of Cotton.The Delta will get periods of scattered showers through Thursday and isolated showers through Saturday and Southeast will get scattered showers. Temperatures should be mostly below normal. Texas will have dry conditions or isolated showers. Temperatures will average near normal. The USDA average price is now 53.80 ct/lb.
