The Pakistan cotton prices saw an upward trend on Saturday amid brisk activity as the result of strong demand from leading spinners and some exporters. The prices touched seasonal high at Rs7,250 per maund on strong demand, with many deals entered on conditional basis reaching as high as Rs7,600 per maund.

The Karachi Cotton Association spot rates remained steady at previous level and trading on ready counter was fairly brisk.

The local market is also moving in support with the global trend, partly because of GSP Plus factor and reportedly higher orders booked by Pakistani exhibitors at Heimtextil fair in Frankfurt.

In the global front, the New York cotton finished higher where all future contracts closed with fresh gains. Similarly, Indian cotton was also reported to be firm.
