NEW DELHI – Ex-mill prices of sugar fell in all the key wholesale markets today as mills rushed to exhaust their October sales quota ahead of the month-end, traders said.


* “Festival demand is mostly over… I feel prices will not go up but may fall by 10-20 rupees (per 100 kg) more next week,” said Mukesh Kuvadia, secretary of Bombay Sugar Merchants’ Association. 


* Following are the highlights of sugar trade in the domestic market today:

  (Changes in price per 100 kg)

  –Down 20-25 rupees at 3,700 rupees in Muzaffarnagar

  –Down 20-25 rupees at 3,680 rupees in Delhi

  –Down 10 rupees at 3,595 rupees in Kolhapur

  –Down 10 rupees at 3,802 rupees in Mumbai


* On the Intercontinental Exchange, the most active March contract of raw sugar was 0.15% lower at 19.63 cents per pound. Investors booked profits after prices hit an over one-week high of 19.76 cents per pound earlier today.


* “The morning started slow, with very little liquidity… building some selling pressure on the longer tenors,” UK-based trading firm Czarnikow said in a note.  End
