Indian seed cotton arrivals slip further
May '13
The all India kappas (seed cotton) arrivals have slipped down to approximately 50,000 bales per day. The demand for Yarn is very poor at the moment and yarn payments in the domestic market have been affected badly.

Yarn Export demands too are dropping drastically. Cotton prices are coming down in reflection to this situation.CCI has announced its price list and has also placed 25000 bales for E-auction but only 1000 bales have been bidded for by the mills.

Nearly 20,000 bales have been tendered with CCI by Guntur based mills and a few mills from other parts of India as per CCI price list


Daily kappas arrivals are approximately 2500 bales and there is good demand from local mills in this region. There were a few showers in some parts. Prices quoted for J-34 r/g in Punjab is Rs.4115/- per maund spot while in Haryana and in Rajasthan J-34 r/g is quoted at Rs.4015/- per maund spot. Bengal Desi s/g was priced at Rs.3700/- per maund spot.


There was a good spell of 4 inches rain which spelt disaster to the standing crops of Red chilly and Jeera in Saurashtra region. This has been followed by severely hot climate at the moment in Gujarat. Daily kappas arrivals are around 20,000 bales in this region and prices quoted for good S-6 cotton is Rs.38,000/- Spot per candy while low quality of 26mm is quoted at Rs.36,500/-Spot per candy.V-797 r/g of good quality is priced at Rs.27,000/-Spot per candy.

For the past two weeks, the prices of both S.6 and V.797, moved in a wider range, with slackness in demand witnessed due to depressed Yarn market and subdued Export demand. Occasional spurt in rates witnessed in S.6, due to hand to mouth covering from Domestic mills. Price behavior range - V.797 - Rs. 27,000 to Rs. 28,500 (Spot rates per Candy) S.6 (29mm) - Rs.37, 800 to Rs.38, 500 spot per candy.

Most of the Ginners in Sourashtra are holding stocks due to disparity, expecting prices to improve during the onset of SouthWest Monsoon.
