YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-01-12 13:00:00 – Karachi

The cotton market remained steady on Wednesday as spinners generally preferred to buy domestic stocks. Earlier, most spinners were holding their hopes to import cotton from India.

The Karachi Cotton Association’s spot rates were steady at overnight level.

Brokers said that Indian cotton prices have risen by around five US cents from 76 to 81 cents a pound on the expectation of huge imports by spinners from Pakistan and smaller than anticipated crop earlier.

Meanwhile, ginners claim that they are currently holding around 1.5 million bales and this could meet industry’s demand for the next couple of months.

Major deals to have changed hands on the ready counter were: 400 bales from Sanghar (Rs6,000), 400 bales Fort Abbas (Rs6,450), 1,000 bales Haroonabad (Rs6,450 to Rs6,550), 1,000 bales Mohammad Pur Dewan (Rs6,550), 600 bales Fazilpur (Rs6,550), 600 bales Faqirwali (Rs6,550), 1,200 bales Kabirwala (Rs6,550 to Rs6,575) and 400 bales Vehari (Rs6,600).

According to the market reports, growers are annoyed over the withdrawal of subsidy on fertilizer whereas the textile industry has been given a huge relief package given by the government.
