Does a large decline in Cotton suggest anything about the consumer or the global economy?  I don’t know, I will leave that up to much smarter people than myself.  Feel free to comment or email on this macro topic if you would care to-

Is a 50% decline in Cotton over the past 4 months enough of a decline to step in an buy it? 

The “Power of the Pattern” looks to be suggesting that Cotton needs to decline a bit further before investors might want to pick up an asset that has fallen a ton in price.  Keep a close eye on the Cotton ETF (BAL) for short-term bounce opportunites that could be close at hand.
