The ICE reported that as of April 17th funds were 4.9% long down from 7.2% long the previous week.

According to a business daily, “The U.S. Economy is giving off mixed signals. Industry demand and employment contracted at a slower pace in April, NABE's survey of business economists said. The Chicago Fed's national activity index also was less negative in March. The leading indicators' pace of decline quickened, though the Conference Board predicts the recession will ease after summer.”

Daily further reported that, “OECD: Stimulus may be working. China's 6.1% Q1 growth rate was evidence of a 'very powerful, very strong' stimulus, Angel Gurria, head of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, told Reuters. While it was the weakest yearly gain in years, most economists say China's growth rebounded on a quarter-to-quarter basis from a near-stagnant Q4.

Gurria added that higher public spending and bank aid were also helping stabilize the U.S. economy. But he said govt's may have to do more and that the global economy won't start growing again until the end of next year. China and India will likely be among the few bright spots.

The OECD expects its 30 member nations to shrink 4.3% this year.” In the third article daily said that, “China's economy will grow 8.3%, slightly faster than the govt's 8% target, as a $585 bil stimulus outweighs a decline in exports, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences said. The OECD and World Bank see China growing 6%-7%.”

The USDA reported that as of April 19th the 15 states were 11% planted verse 8% last week verse a 14% on average. CA was 45% complete with AZ 35% planted.

According to Cotlook, “March yarn output Data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) indicate that yarn output in March rose sharply to 1,953,300 tonnes, up 30 percent from the previous month. The total represents the second highest on record, after June 2008 (1,999,000 tonnes). According to NBS, cumulative yarn output in the first three months of the year amounted to 4,801,900 tonnes, up eight percent compared with the same period last year.”
