The article presents an outlook for the cotton market for 2014. It notes that cotton future prices have been supported at an artificially high level by China's internal policy of stockpiling cotton which has created an artificial shortage of cotton. It indicates the likelihood of a continuance of range-bound cotton prices with downside risk and uncertainty into 2014/15 until there is a clearer evidence of any changes in China's reserve policy.
