Cotton Prices on International and Domestic Markets Weekly Report

Cotton prices have been stable at their new levels in the past week. The lack of supply in Pakistan may offer a strong support to the market, whereas a sharp fall in New York could also be experienced, nevertheless. Our weekly cotton report covers the international futures market in New York and China, and the physical indicator "A Index". Domestic cotton prices in China, India and Pakistan are also reviewed through a large number of tables and charts. All data are available for download.

Cotton prices have stayed relatively stable at their significantly higher levels in the last week.

In New York, the nearby contract has lost 0.62 cent per lb or 0.8% after having jumped by 14% in only three months.

Making predictions seems nearly impossible. Cotton prices are usually supported by tighter supply in this period of the year until the new crop from the Southern hemisphere is available.

On the other hand demand may tumble on the physical market if current prices would not allow spinners to pass such a surge in their material costs.

In addition, any sign that prices could fall would trigger heavy selling by speculative funds which are currently long.

In India and Pakistan, available data do not look very reliable, according to market participants.

The India production could be much lower than expected in Gujarat and Maharashtra.

In addition, Pakistan is now experiencing shortages of quality cotton with India apparently unable to supply the market with requested quality.







Prices have surged in Pakistan to a level not seen in the past five years, as above indicated.

At the same time, demand has increased this season from Bangladesh and Vietnam where yarn production is rapidly rising, year after year, in order to feed domestic knit apparel plants.
