The start by China of the sell-down of a small amount of its huge cotton reserves overshadowed a, cautiously, positive reaction to US data on the fibre to snuff out ideas of a rise in futures.
New York's March cotton contract, which rebounded in the last session more than 2% from its intraday lows, eased on Monday after China unveiled the start of sales from its state reserves, which the International Cotton Advisory Committee sees potentially hitting 10m tonnes.
The sale, of 40,145 tonnes, represented only a small portion of the stocks, and China had been long forecast to make some disposals, if only to clear space for purchases from the domestic market.
China is attempting, through intervention, the difficult balancing act of supporting cotton returns to farmers while keeping prices low enough so as not to damage the competitiveness of domestic mills, although many of these have struggled with the country's prices.
