KARACHI: Cotton prices remained under pressure in line with world cotton markets on Wednesday. Barring a routine nature of demand, the market remained devoid of activity. There seems to be a general lethargy in trading activity influenced by global factors and slow Demand from spinners remained thin. The New York cotton market moved further lower on slower exports figures. The market seems to be waiting for some positive news because the glut of yarn with spinners is a cause of alarm and this is also having a negative impact on the overall cotton trade. The world factors are heavily influencing domestic cotton market because Indian cotton also tumbled down by up to Rs600 per candy, after witnessing a rise of almost an equal amount only a day earlier.
