Mumbai (Commodities Control) - Maharashtra cotton prices have stalled for the second straight session on Wednesday due to weak demand from MNCs and private millers amid higher daily arrivals.

ICE cotton futures fell about 1% on Tuesday following a sharp rise in the previous session, as a subdued sentiment in equity markets weighed on the natural fiber. The cotton market was able to shed intense selling pressure and close moderately lower. However Domestic futures are on the rise during the afternoon session as Kapas April ‘21 trades 0.79% higher at Rs 1259.50 and cotton is quoted close to Rs 22,390, up 0.36%.

It is to be noted that state mandis are facing a crunch of good quality cotton supplies, while exporters are looking for premium quality. Farmers are holding back remaining supplies, while there are estimates of higher exports of Indian cotton. This will aid price rise in Indian cotton in future.

On Wednesday, daily cotton arrivals were registered at 32,000 bales vs 30,000 bales in the last session. It is to be noted that weather conditions have improved in the region.

Maharashtra Cotton Quotes (Per Quintal)

Kapas - Rs 5,500 - 6,500
