Prices firm on limited supply of Phutti


A steady trend prevailed on the cotton market on Wednesday as mills indulged in forward buying ahead of Eid-ul-Azha, dealers said. The official spot rate was unchanged at Rs 6,500, dealers said. In Sindh, seed cotton prices gained Rs 50 to Rs 3200-3400, in Punjab Phutti rates were at Rs 3000-3400, per 40 kg, respectively, they said. In ready business, nearly 10,000 bales of cotton changed hands between Rs 6550 and Rs 6825, they said.

Market sources said that prices managed to hold present levels due to restricted selling by ginners and growers. Cotton supply is not enough to meet the demand by mills, they said. Supply is not begins in Punjab due to late sowing, they added. Cotton analyst, Naseem Usman said that as a whole, prices in the local market are firm following the track in the international market. If supply position not improves, rates of fine quality of cotton could go up in the coming days, he added.
