That week (August 29-September 2, 2022), Zheng cotton maintained a volatile downward trend, and fell below the 10,000 mark in daily trading on Friday, with the lowest point once falling to 14,040 yuan/ton. This wave of decline was mainly due to the influence of foreign cotton. The sharp correction of US cotton caused Zheng cotton to lose support and follow the decline.

That week, under the sharp adjustment of US cotton, Zheng cotton could not survive alone. Due to the relatively weak domestic fundamentals, the fluctuation range of the market was weaker than that of the external market. After continuing to fluctuate near the Wanwu mark, Zheng Mian finally chose to break through downward, and the center of the shock continued to move downward. A very few companies in Xinjiang and the mainland have tried to open scales, and the opening price is basically 5.5-6.0 yuan/kg, reflecting the weakness of the cotton market in the new year.

That week, the domestic epidemic once again showed signs of spreading at multiple points, and some areas took silent measures to strengthen control, which had a certain impact on cotton consumption. Domestic power shortage areas are facing cooling and rainy weather. With the lifting of power restrictions, the operating rate of the cotton textile industry has rebounded, and consumption has rebounded to a certain extent, but the rebound is limited. In particular, the demand for medium and high-count yarns is less than expected, and raw material prices have fluctuated widely. , downstream companies still need to replenish their stocks, especially since the new season cotton will be picked soon, which will also put pressure on cotton prices.
