YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-08-03 13:00:00 – Karachi

Trading activity on the cotton market expands on Wednesday with increasing flow of phutti (seed cotton) which will also improve the supply of quality lint. However, short supply against higher demand kept prices steady.

Phutti arrivals from Sindh continue to be higher due to early maturing of crop, therefore much of trading was noted in this variety.However, supplies from Punjab were also improving.

The Punjab phutti variety was being quoted about Rs600 higher over its Sindh counterpart that has higher moisture content. There are growing fears that in case the Punjab government does not take timely measures, pest attack could cause massive damage to the crop.

The Karachi Cotton Association (KCA) left its spot rates unchanged at the overnight level. While, at Karachi Cotton Exchange, active trading was witnessed on Wednesday with spot rate remaining unchanged at Rs6,350/maund (37.324 kilogramme) and Rs6,802/40kg.
