Price of imported cotton dips at Chinese ports
Feb '12
The prices of imported cotton at main Chinese ports basically declined on January 31, of which, Australian cotton and US cotton showed significant drop of 1.25 cents / lb.

It is learnt that mills are not so much interested in purchasing foreign cotton, although import quota has been issued.

Analysts say that trade in imported cotton will continue to remain light, till mills return to the spot cotton market.

US C/A cotton grade SM1-1/8" was quoted at 112.35 cents / lb, which is equivalent to 18,621 Yuan / ton when converted in to local currency by means of sliding duty.
