In the ready session, only 2000 bales changed hands between Rs 4350-5700Seed cotton rates in Sindh were unchanged at Rs 2000-2600 and in Punjab prices registered at Rs 2400-3100.

Cotton analyst, Naseem Usman, said that prices will go up in the coming days as mills and spinners were trying to grab all lots of lint cotton despite the soaring prices. If petroleum prices go up in coming days, this factor may cause slight rise in the cotton rates

He added that prices are firm in the international market due to strong demand, local prices also moving in a tight range due to said reason.
