According to the merchants reports the prices remained relatively firm. Since most mill buyers were not yet willing to pay the requested prices, enquiries hardly led to closure of contracts. In addition the volatile New York Futures caused a more reluctant attitude on buyer's side. If business was made, prompt delivery dates prevailed.
In the Upland range were traded: Central Asian descriptions for the 4th quarter 2009 and the 1st quarter 2010 as well as Greek cotton for near dates.
In the LS/ELS range contracts were registered about small volumes of US Pima and Israel for the last quarter 2009.
