Buyers of US cotton cancelled more bales than they purchased in the latest reporting week for the first time since June 2012, US official data showed, validating concerns that high prices have curbed demand. Buyers from six countries cancelled at least 67,500 bales of upland cotton in the most recent reporting week, data from the US Agriculture Department (USDA) showed on Thursday, as New York futures hovered near two-year highs above 90 cents a lb.
