German cotton market continues to move back & forth
Sep '13
The Cotlook A and the CIF Bremen Index quotations moved again more or less sideways like in most of the previous months. At the local market, the processing industry seemed to be well covered for the rest of this year. In part the inquiries for the fourth quarter were for price testing or with the intention to look for nearby bargains.

The weaker Dollar and more attractive cotton prices in Euro might be a reason for a more active business for delivery dates more ahead than in the weeks before. Besides medium staple cotton from African or Central Asian origins especially contracts in coming European crops were agreed for supplies within the first half of next year.

A similar remarkable development in demand was recognized also in the Extra Long Staple cotton market. Expected tight supplies and increasing prices motivated spinning mills to cover already for deliveries up to the second half of next year which could perhaps considered as a sign of increasing trust to the economic outlook.

Contracts were concluded for:

Medium staple cotton: For prompt delivery cotton from Central Asia, from West Africa for the 4th quarter 2013 and the 1st quarter 2014, from East Africa for the 1st quarter 2014, from Greece and Spain for delivery in the 1st and 2nd quarter 2014.

Long and extra-long staple cotton: USA Pima for the 4th quarter 2013 as well as the 1st, 3rd and 4th quarter 2014, Israel Acalpi for the 1st and 3rd quarter 2014, Israel Pima for the 1st up to the 4th quarter 2014.
