Values for the Indian Shankar-6 variety increased in international terms over the past month, rising from 83 cents/lb to 85 cents/lb, due to a strengthening rupee. In domestic terms, values were flat to lower, holding to levels between Rs 43,000 and Rs 44,000 per candy of 356 kg. The May New York futures contract declined to 75 cents/lb recently.

As the May NY contract has approached expiration, the July contract has picked up a larger share of open interest. Prices for the July contract have been consistently trading at a higher level than those for May, but July futures also lost ground over the past month, falling from levels near 80 cents/lb to those around 76 cent/lb, according to the latest monthly economic letter by Cotton Incorporated.
