After small rise Bremen Cotton Index stays unchanged

After a short rise, the CIF Bremen Cotton Index stayed unchanged over the reported week, quite opposite to the NY cotton futures market.

The price movement in NY cotton futures was supported by stable demand for US cotton, covering of short positions as well as concerns about the influence of the weather on production in Texas.

In the international market, overall demand increased and active buying of mills for nearby periods and the first half of next year was reported.

In part, the local market still seemed to be influenced by holidays, although more inquiries were noticed.

Due to concerns about a weakening Euro, some spinning mills covered their needs in medium staple cotton for the fourth quarter as well as for the beginning of next year, to benefit from the current prices of new cotton crop.

In the reporting period, contracts for medium staple cotton were concluded for; West Africa for prompt and the fourth quarter of 2014; Central Asia for the third and fourth quarter of 2014; Greece for the fourth quarter of 2014 and East Africa for the first quarter of 2015.

There were no reports of contracts in long and extra-long staple cotton.
