ABSTRACT
The article presents information about cotton futures trading on the Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange (ZCE) in China. Daily volume in Zhengzhou cotton futures, which completed their first year of trading on June 1, 2005 is now running about 50.000 contracts. Open interest at the ZCE has been running between 60,000 and 80,000 contracts per day since last November. What's important about these numbers is that the New York Cotton Exchange only reached this level after 120 years of trading and a record U.S. cotton crop, says Ed Jernigan, chairman and CEO of Globecot Inc.
