Business activities were quite thin on this day, and lint of different qualities exchanged hands with in the range of Rs2850 to Rs3000 per maund. Market regained some strength and stability with the news that Trading Corporation of Pakistan (TCP) will enter the market to support the prices.

Tuesday was more or less similar to the previous day, with no changes in the prices of cotton at KCA, which stood at Rs2,900 per maund. Market remained active as players were positive with the TCP re-enterence news.

The spot rate at KCA regained some strength and the settlement price was declared at Rs2,950 per maund with an increase of Rs50 on Wednesday. The market witnessed a dull trading session amid increasing spot rate and growing demand for fine lint. Few deals were struck and prices stood with in the range of Rs3050 to Rs3100 per maund.

According to Mr Rabbani, an active trading session was observed on Thursday KCA Market. Growing demand for fine lint from the traders and surging spot rates left cotton producers beaming.
