Bremen cotton market improves
Feb '12
Bremen Cotton Exchange reported that week started just like the previous week. With brisk demand of the processing industry. Some merchants were able to close more contracts despite risen prices, but long-term contracts were avoided and all parties had to make concessions concerning price as well as quality. Within the course of the week the Bremen CIF-Index improved by a good 3 cents and on Friday the New York cotton futures registered a considerable increase for March leading to a slightly quieter business during the second half of the reported week.

According to some reports the year 2011 was not as bad for the retail trade as suspected, although consumers' prices have risen within the course of the year due to higher raw material costs and purchase prices. The near future will likely be shaped by short calculations. The processing industry therefore needs to expect smaller volumes and shorter delivery terms. This also describes the situation on the cotton market.

Contracts on Upland cotton were reported from the following origins: Brazil for prompt delivery, Central Asia and West Africa for prompt up to the 2nd quarter 2012 as well as Pakistan for the 2nd quarter 2012.

Giza 86 and 88 from Egypt were sold in the LS/ELS-range for prompt as well as for the 2nd quarter 2012.
