Looking from the view of recent market trend, favorable news has been wantonly trumpeted, while traders are turning a blind eye to many existing bad news. The industry believes that current increase in cocoon and silk prices are supported all by bubbles and the bubble will burst in the near future, after which prices will slide down.
