The Mumbai market witnessed a steady trend in cotton yarn and market sentiments were weak because of liquidity crunch and poor demand. A trader from Mumbai told Fibre2Fashion, “Traders cannot rely on one market, so they must utilise their liquidity in other markets including the stock market. But recent fall in stock market squeezed the liquidity from the cotton yarn market. Prices remained stable but trade was limited.”
