Increased movements in cotton market
Mar '11
The New York Cotton Futures have not risen again at the beginning of this week. The reduced forecasts of the Indian and Chinese crop as well as the necessity of covering short positions had probably supported the price increase during the first week of March. Domestic prices for deliveries at near dates remained stable and did not ease.

The interest of the spinning mills in near deliveries dropped in comparison to last week.

The producing industries have taken a closer look at future months to safeguard production until the beginning of the new crop in the Northern hemisphere; and also a look at new crops at more interesting prices. Cheap offers found purchasers at any time.

Merchants registered quite a moving market with less closed contracts, but at a considerable volume. The market for longand extra long staple cotton hardly reacted to the movements on the futures market.

The following turnover was registered in the Upland range: Central Asian cotton for near dates and for the 2nd quarter 2011, West African descriptions for near dates, the 2nd quarter 2011 and the 1st quarter 2012, Brazilian cotton for the 4th quarter 2011 and the 1st quarter 2012 as well as Greek types for the 4th quarter 2011.

The long- and extra long staple need was satisfied by Israel Pima for the 1st quarter 2012, USPima for the 2nd quarter 2011 as well as Egyptian Giza 86 and 88 for near delivery.
