Cotton

Cotton is a key agricultural commodity, used in many aspects of modern life from clothing to bedding to upholstery. After making a new all time low of 13.5 mg/lb in 2009, cotton went on a tear in 2010, easily punching through resistance at 30 mg/lb, almost quadrupling in value. But in 2011, prices collapsed, and have continued to fall, setting new all time lows at the end of 2012.
