PMEX has inducted a new market maker who will ensure ample liquidity in the market to facilitate entry and exit of investors. Pakistan is among the top five cotton producers of the world and nearly two-thirds of its export proceeds come from textiles and clothing.
One of the main features of PMEX ICotton contract is that the price of the contract is referenced to the futures contract of Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), USA which is considered as the most liquid global cotton pricing benchmark, the price quotation offered is in US Cents/pound and it is a cash settled contract in PKR with no physical delivery involvement. These unique features of the contract gives the local market participants an international flare with the ease and convenience of local trading.
Speaking at the re-launch of the contract, Ejaz Ali Shah, Managing Director, PMEX said, “We are glad to announce activation of another product, ICotton. PMEX’s ICOTTON Contract offers the cotton industry an opportunity to hedge their price risk in a safe and transparent environment using a convenient state-of-the-art trading platform.” (SH)
