Oct '10
Indian cotton traders, supported by the restricted international cotton supplies and strong demand from both China and Pakistan, have been asking for $1.32 to $1.35 per lb for December-January consignments. This is 14-17 cents more than New York futures cotton price. Demand for cotton from China is good. China has been purchasing cotton at the rate of 132 cents per pound.

Around two weeks ago, Indian exporters had been asking for 120 cents following the raised prices in the market. The New York futures had been doing business at 117.65 cents per lb. Cotton prices have increased in the local market. Due to this, the exporters have been asking for a high price of about $1.35 per lb.

The price of Shankar-6 variety of cotton has recorded a high of Rs 40,800 ($927.3) per candy (of 356 kg each) in India. India has permitted an export of 5.5 million bales of cotton in 2010-11. Cotton production is expected to rise to a record high of 35 million bales in 2010-11, which is more than the previous estimate of 32.5 million bales of cotton.
