Brazilian cotton prices continue to rise in Sept
Oct '16
Driven by rise in Ice Futures at the New York Stock Exchange, Brazilian cotton prices continued to increase in late September. Cotton prices also grew on expectations of low cotton availability until the beginning of harvesting of the new crop. Besides, cotton buyers too expressed higher interest in purchasing, while sellers remained firm in asking prices.

The CEPEA/ESALQ Index for payment in 8 days, for cotton type 41-4, delivered in São Paulo, increased 2.77 per cent, closing at BRL 2.5244 or $0.7764 per pound on September 30.

Quoting data from the Brazilian Commodity Exchange, CEPEA said 73.8 per cent of the Brazilian 2014/15 cotton crop, forecast at 1.563 million tons, had already been traded until late September. Of this volume, 50.8 per cent was sold in the domestic market and the rest in the international market.

With regards to the 2015/16 crop, projected at 1.289 million tons, 60.4 per cent had already been traded in September. Of this total, 43.9 per cent was sold in the local market and the rest in the global markets. (AR)
