Drop in cotton acreage expected

May '08
May has brought motion in sales mostly on behalf of international merchants.

For the last ten days things have been rather active on the Greek market. Three different types of new sales can be reported.

• On call basis Dec 08 of current crop with new crop delivery terms. As the market went lower the basis seemed more attractive to many ginners compared to the equivalent fix prices. There is plenty of time till Dec 08 so most ginners believe that they will have the opportunity to fix at a 'fair' price.

• On call basis July 08 of current crop with prompt shipment & shipments. Some ginners who had not sold serious quantities so far decided to commit some stocks basis July 08 provided they get an early payment.

• Direct sales of ginners to mostly Turkish spinners. Some Turkish mills decided to buy few 'hand to mouth' quantities at levels around 163-164 usc/kgs FOT. These levels seem attractive to ginners mainly because of the strengthening dollar.

As a result these last sales have reduced the current stocks which should be at the levels of 135 - 140,000 tons. Still this figure is a 'career high' for this month of the year and it is most likely that a big part of these stocks will be transferred into the new season.

The new crop plantings are developing under normal weather conditions without any serious problems so far. Everybody is talking about the drop in cotton acreage in favor of wheat - corn, but no one can make an accurate estimate on this shrink.
