Trading volumes stood thin as buyers were purchasing lint on an assortment basis with better stocks shrinking to meet their domestic, as well as international commitments of textile and cloth, traders reported. Spot rate also stayed firm.

Intermediate and fiber prices remained firm in the Asian polyester chain and the lack of supply on the paraxylene market is pushing prices up to higher levels, he added.
