Cotton price to fall
Cotton prices are expected to fall 3-5% in the next two week as pickings from a new crop increase amid dull mill demand, traders said. Daily cotton arrivals from the winter crop, sown in June-July and harvested in October-Janaury, were expected to rise to about 75,000 bales (of 170 kg each) by end- November from about 45,000 bales now, they said. Millers are not coming forward to buy in bulk and widen quality choices, said a cotton trader.
