Improving weather, promoting fast-paced harvesting in big areas of the Delta and Southeast, helped to keep rallies in check this week as cotton futures put in a mixed performance.

Spot December dipped 52 points to close the week ended Thursday at 63.04 cents. It finished around the middle of its 216-point range after falling from a high of 64.14 on Oct. 17 to a 14-session low at 61.98 cents on Thursday.

March edged up 17 points to settle at 61.88 cents, while December 2015 gained 65 points to close at 65.47 cents amid talk of reduced cotton plantings next spring.
