NEW DELHI – Ex-mill prices of sugar were up in key wholesale markets of north India today because of a rise in demand for festivals, traders said.

* Prices were flat in west India today because of lack of fresh cues ahead of the weekend.


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

  (Changes in price per 100 kg)

  –Up 15-20 rupees at 3,710 rupees in Muzaffarnagar

* On the Intercontinental Exchange, the most active March contract of raw sugar was 0.3% higher at 19 cents per pound.


* "The market fears large fund selling and maintains a bearish bias, with rains in key producers India, Thailand and Brazil adding pressure," said in a report.  End
