The price increase since the beginning of this week has partly incorporated the limited availability for near dates. Next to the impact of the stock performance evaluation, future influences of high prices of the competing crops, the drought in Texas and India as well as speculations on additional Chinese import quotas may possibly play a role.
The company holidays are ending on the domestic market, clearly perceptible by increased enquiries for mostly nearby delivery up to the new crop at the beginning of the reported week.
Some contracts were already closed for dates reaching far into the coming year. Yet due to the price development the processing industry generated a wait-and-see-attitude during the course of the reported week.
Upland-cotton was sold from Central Asia and West Africa for prompt delivery, from Brazil for the 4th quarter 2012, from Greece for the 4th quarter 2012 up to the 1st and 2nd quarter 2013, as well as from Spain for 1st and 2nd quarter 2013.
