Karachi Cotton Exchange on Tuesday continued to witness active trading, while upcountry expenses increased Rs10 a maund. According to an analyst, upcountry expenses increased after a period of around two years, as transport charges also escalated

Spot rate stood unchanged at Rs6,350/maund (37.324 kilogrammes) and Rs6,802/40-kg. However, ex-Karachi rates rose to Rs6,495/maund and Rs6,960/40-kg after addition of Rs145 and Rs155 as upcountry expenses, respectively.

Nine transactions were recorded of around 6,000 bales at a price of Rs6,350 to Rs6,700 a maund.
