Join experts from FCStone for an update on the latest information and insights about cotton prices, availability and futures. The webinar will address these questions and more:

  • Cotton prices have doubled since this time last year - will they continue to rise?
  • What are the factors that propel cotton prices? Is it simply supply and demand or are other factors at work?
  • Do higher cotton prices really translate into higher costs for clothing companies? For retailers?
  • Considering that foreign governments have restricted cotton exports, will supply continue to meet demand?
  • What effect will cotton yarn embargoes/export tariffs have on sourcing in the Subcontinent and Asia?
  • How can companies use cotton futures to balance risk and trade?
