What are cotton futures?

Cotton futures are exchange-traded contracts in which a buyer agrees to purchase a specific quantity of cotton at a predetermined price on a future delivery date. Cotton futures contracts are commonly used by manufacturers, processors and other businesses in the cotton industry to hedge against commodity price fluctuations. Cotton futures prices are influenced by a variety of factors, including weather patterns, supply and demand, and global economic conditions.

How do I trade cotton futures?

Cotton futures can be traded on the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) or on the Globex platform. Cotton has been a key commodity for nearly 7000 years and is one of the most widely traded commodities worldwide. Its importance in agriculture, textiles and even food products makes cotton an attractive trade for both speculators and hedgers. One cotton futures contract, as quoted on ICE, is equal to 50,000 pounds and is quoted in cents and hundredths per pound. Cotton futures contracts are subject to a daily price limit that can range from 3 to 7 cents per pound.
