During the trading session, buyers in Sindh and Punjab stations bought all grades on cautious note as grade issue. Traders offered all grades of lint on bargaining rates at around Rs 4,975 per maund to Rs 5,975 per maund in order to capitalise maximum returns on their proceeds, floor brokers said.
KCA kept the spot rate at Rs 6,600 per maund in order to provide support to weak stakeholders of raw grade to ward off minimal price level, said floor brokers.
Spinners in Sindh and Punjab stations made deals for fine grades on competitive price at around Rs 6,450 per maund to Rs 6,525 per maund while general buyers made deals for all grades in Punjab and Sindh stations at around Rs 4,975 per maund to Rs 5,225 per maund, traders said.
