The persistent fall witnessed in cotton prices last week compelled growers to hold back phutti (seed cotton) supply till such time demand and supply position improves. Therefore, slow arrival of phutti to ginneries restricted cotton supply and as a result trading volume suddenly declined though spinners and some exporters were keen to build upon their inventory. However, growers failed to check the rapidly falling cotton prices by holding back phutti supply. This was mainly because ginners were not ready to take risk by holding back their cotton stocks, particularly when world cotton scenario is not in favour of sellers. Consequently, most of the deals were quoted at lower prices and the Karachi Cotton Association (KCA) spot rates were revised downward by Rs100 etf best to trade to Rs6450 per maund. Cotton analyst Naseem Usman said that expected bumper Indian cotton crop has completely changed parameters of world cotton trade because out of the estimated production of 38.1 million bales this season around 10 million bales are going to find their way into world markets.

That likelihood is (1) hard to know and (2) probably systematically underestimated by the people who, y’know, insider trade. Incidentally, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines recommend a fine of $411 to $823 million, according to the plea agreement, though no one would call that a rational argument for anything. *** Right? The indictment (pages 27-28) charges CR Intrinsic with insider trading in Elan stock because SAC analyst Mathew Martoma got information from a doctor involved in the company’s drug trials and “spoke by telephone to the SAC Owner, who the next day began selling the entire $700 million position” to take advantage of the inside information. SAC/CR Intrinsic is pleading guilty to that count and admitting to the $200+ million gain there.
