Panic buying of the past two days was no longer evident as both buyers and sellers seemed to have rationalised their approach and steady conditions prevailed on the cotton market on Wednesday as buyers indulged in short covering for their near future demands.

Pakistan Central Cotton Committee’s (PCCC) review has set aside all fears and apprehensions that were afloat about the size of the crop in the light of heat wave, smog and fog impact, said Naseem Usman, chairman Karachi Cotton Brokers’ Forum.

Rising cotton prices also impacted phutti (seed cotton) prices which rose for both Sindh and Punjab varieties. Phutti prices rose to Rs2,800-3,300 for Sindh variety and to Rs2,800-3,450 per 40kg for Punjab quality. Trading in spot deals remained fairly brisk, with prices remaining steady and close to overnight level.
