Trading activity at cotton market on Monday remained slow as buyers and sellers remained to the sidelines owing to short supply of quality lint and rise in cotton prices. The Karachi Cotton Association also raised its spot rates by Rs50, to Rs6,800 per maund (around 37kg).

According to market estimates, ginners currently hold 500,000 bales of cotton in order to get best prices are careful in disposing of these stocks.

Spinners are facing difficulty in exporting cotton yarn on the world market owing to uncompetitive pri¬¬ces, however, there was fairly good demand for yarn on the local market, brokers said.

Moreover, drop in prices of polyester cotton (PC) influenced by falling global petroleum prices could also encourage the value-added textile sector to use more PC yarn than cotton yarn, they added.
