MUMBAI (Commoditiescontrol) - Cotton prices remained mostly weak at major markets in North India on Tuesday in limited trade due to the decline in demand at existing higher levels after a rise in the prices over the last few trading sessions.

A total of 8,500 bales of cotton today arrived in North India, including 1,500 bales in Punjab, 6,000 bales in Haryana and 1,000 bales in upper Rajasthan. Arrivals were at 9,200 bales on Monday.

The price of 27-28.5MM cotton in Punjab quoted lower by Rs 3 at Rs 4,140-4,170/maund. While, 27-28MM cotton in Haryana ruled flat at Rs 4,130-4,150 per maund. Price of 26.5-28MM cotton moved lower by Rs10 to Rs 4,140 per maund in upper Rajasthan.

Average price of kapas in North India was at Rs 5,200-5,400/quintal. While cotton seed quoted at Rs 2,650-2,700/quintal. Cotton seed oil cake on the other hand traded at Rs 2,325-2,500 per quintal.

According to traders, the arrival in Punjab is very low because of Lohri, a local festival. At the same time, very few buyers are in the market. Mills too are absent from the market. In such a situation, sellers are interested in doing trade at yesterday's price.

Today, trading is sluggish in Rajasthan as Makar Sankranti is being celebrated here today. Whereas in Haryana, most markets will remain closed tomorrow on the occasion of Makar Sankranti.

Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department has issued a warning of heavy rain and hailstorm in Punjab and Haryana on 15-16 January. Also, in some areas of Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan, there are warnings of rain.

Globally, US cotton futures on ICE rose on Monday, hitting a more than eight-month high, ahead of the expected signing of a Phase 1 US-China trade deal. Cotton March contract settled up 22 points to 71.53 cents per lb. It rose to 71.96 cents earlier in the session, the level last seen on May 9.

However, the cotton Jan contract on MCX last traded down Rs 40 at Rs 19,930/bale due to a stronger rupee.
