Market Letter on Cotton.
By privets wire, J. S Latham A Co.
New York, November 10,-After Sat
urday's temporary advance, we were
treated to another break this a. m. and
only once more obliged to report new
low levels. March proved weakest
wnea the break came selling down to 8c
early, then to 7.84, January sold at 8X7,
as compared with 8.16 the low last
week. There was- again an attempt to
hold the market by purchases of May,
but this did no good. It was the Jan
nary business that did the trick. A
sharp break In stocks helped to unsettle
cotton, and It looked very much , as
though the January people had all they
oonld do to look after what they had, to
say nothing ofltrylng to hold the price
by buying more. During early p. m.
January sold at 8.00, to May 8.02. The
market begins to look better on every
break In January, that lessens the pre
mium. If we could be confident the
January people had been forced to sell i
good share of their cotton, we would ad
vise buying with more confidence. This
is the one menacing factor. It's carry'
lng prices lower than naturally expected
ss we said last week cotton should be
bought on breaks, profits should be
taken on advance, as the market will be
unsettled and irregular at best.
C. W. Lie & Co
New Tobk, Nov. 8. While anew
low record was made with the 8.01 for
March yesterday, everything looked bet
ter this a, m. and the market had a sub
stantial recovery. There is every rea
son to look for a further advance on
Monday and on such an advance one
can sell the cotton, bought on breaks
with a fair profit and prospects of get
ting It back cheaper. The tone Is likely
to be .feverish for some days after the
break, but an advance Is In order. Be
sides It Is not certain that prices should
advance just yet. The movement next
week will be more than last year, and It
will operate against an advance, Weather
now plays a less Important part In the
market as frosts cannot come till Nov
ember 9th or 10th. Considering the
early crop this means a longer growing
season than we have had In years. Many
thousands, many : hundred bales have
been added to. the crop and this makes
us look for eleven million bales asths
more probable figures this year. We
have looked for more bales than last
year all along and this nneweatner
makes a large orop, Until the rush of
cotton Is on 8 cents would seem to be a
fair figure and the market may run be
tween 8 and 81' cants for some tlmeun
tll we know something more of the size
of the crop. For this reason selling on
a reaction of 15 or 20 points wonld seem
to be a good thing, but on a break to
about yesterday's figures we would risk
buying again A feature today was buy
ing of May that put that above March.
This could hardly be termed anything
but a trick. The brokers supposed to
operate for the bull pool came In and
bought May to try and (scare shorts to
cover, all the time January was being
disposed of quietly. They could not
buy any more March very well as all the
short Interest there is necessary to pro
vide a place for the January. : All this
is hardly ; a good sign -and we are not
prepared to more than advise buying on
every decline, to take profits on an ad
vance. Everything will depend on
receipts and the Liverpool demand.
The break In the stock market doesn't
encourage speculation tn cotton.
