Cotton price in Pakistan market maintained upward journey on Wednesday, influenced with the recent international trend. Brokers said that deals were made at higher rates by up to Rs150 to Rs200 per maund as the world cotton markets moved higher influencing the domestic trading. Buyers rushed to replenish their stocks at higher level, cotton prices rose above the psychological barrier of Rs5,000 per maund because of rise in the dollar’s value against the rupee which has improved export parity of textile goods.

Sustained buying from spinners and exporters pushed lint prices higher on the cotton market. Floor brokers said that improved export parity following depreciation in the rupee’s value against the dollar induced buying from leading spinners. The underlying sentiment, however, was firm and buyers generally looked optimistic about the revival of the economy.

The official spot rate extended overnight gains picking up Rs 50 to Rs 4,950. In the ready session, over 20,000 bales of cotton changed hands between Rs 4650 and Rs 5275.

The seed cotton rate in Sindh at Rs 1800 and Rs 2350, in the Punjab prices were higher by Rs 200 to Rs 2200 and Rs 2600. Some leading exporters and mills played an active role in recent rise in the demand, cotton analyst, Naseem Usman said. Fall in fine quality stock, inducing buyers to make forward buying, rumours of cut in US cotton production in future, weakening rupee and recent rise in oil prices, played very important role in surge of local prices.
