Cotton futures posted triple digit losses in most nearby contracts, with deferred months 32 to 77 cents lower. Pressure came mostly from end of month profit taking and competition from lower crude oil. Traders are also positioning for the index fund roll period. Friday’s Cotton Classing report showed 572,005 bales of upland cotton were classed during the week of Jan 25. That brings the total to 17.461 million bales so far this year.
