YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-12-21 14:00:00 – Islamabad

In the process of modest trading activity, cotton prices dropped on Tuesday. According to the market sources, conditional import of cotton from India and declining trend in the global market, particularly in China forced buyers to keep on the sidelines. The official spot rate was lower by Rs 50 to Rs 6250.

In Sindh, seed cotton prices were at Rs 2600-3250 while in Punjab, phutti rates were at Rs 2800 and Rs 3500, as per 40 kg, dealers said.

Cotton analyst, Naseem Usman said that Pakistan has booked nearly 70,000 bales of cotton from India. Reports showed that the country has harvested 10.147 million bales of cotton upto December 15, dimming hopes of a better cotton harvest during the current year.

While other experts are of the view that activity has declined owing to short supply of quality cotton. The spinners still need substantial quantity of cotton they were disappointed due to short supply of lint cotton. According to some analysts, Department of Plant Protection (DPP) has allowed the release of Indian cotton at the Karachi Port.

The following deals reported to have changed hand as per dealers: 600 bales from Sanghar at Rs 5900/6250, 500 bales from Shahpur Chakar at Rs 6225, 2000 bales from Salehpat at Rs 6300/6360, 1600 bales from Rohri at Rs 6300, 600 bales from Tonsa Sharif at Rs 6050, 1600 bales from Chistian at Rs 6100, 2600 bales from Mianwali at Rs 6100, 800 bales from Layyah at Rs 6100, 800 bales from Hasilpur at Rs 6300, 600 bales from Ahmedpur at Rs 6450, 1400 bales from Muridwala at Rs 6475 and 600 bales from Multan at Rs 6550.
