Member, Cosmic Commodity

"We appreciate the way you thought about investors interest of suspended castor seeds contracts. Bases for the determination of price is satisfied. However lots of things have to be done like: - what about processed stock? - what about goods received, bills also received and yet to be deposited or contacted for deposition? - it is sure that some clients may be reimbursed but most of the clients could not be reimbursed due to lack of requirements as on date - loss of Exchange’s reputation is only partially survived However we take the Exchange’s step as positive".

Ketan Kotak

"We at BK commodties are really happy by the action taken on castor seed contracts by the Exchange in the month of January by suspending it. We always had confidence in the Exchange's rules and regulations, as well as its structure of the commodity business. By the news of exchange giving a benefit of Rs.120 on castor contracts we are happy, not for the monetary gain or losses made by the hedgers but for the transparency and trust that we have in the Exchange. NCDEX has yet again proved that its ethical business methods are always with its members & clients.

"We are very thankful to you for your support and action taken in regard to reimbursement of castor losses to the parties who are genuine and have valid deliverable stock in NCDEX accredited warehouse and also have short position in NCDEX exchange. This action will lead to encouragement of client's belief in the Exchange and more clients will attract to do business in NCDEX platform in demat comtrack account instead of holding stock in non-NCDEX warehouse. This is a good indication for mitigate the speculation at a acceptable level because stock can be access to NCDEX and good measures can be taken from time to time.

Mahesh Shah
, VCP, Mihikita Enterprise

"Any step initiated by the Exchange to ameliorate the misery of hedgers/traders in the castor seed trade suspended is a welcome step although the whole process has been a long drawn out affair and needs expeditious closure to build confidence and ambience of transparency. There are loose ends but contracts are not suspended in other commodities to strengthen the system. It is an ongoing process and defaulting parties need to be brought to books howsoever powerful they can be if the confidence and pride of the exchange is to be restored".

Madhur Jalani

The big farmers who don’t have urgent need of capital have no doubt benefitted by this price rise, but rest of them haven’t. I regularly go mandi and don’t see Soyabean coming there for sell. So, I don’t think farmers have the crop in abundance and they are selling. Those who had to sell, have already sold. Rest are holding it and will sell around next season sowing.

Janaki Prasad

We had anticipated this kind of rise in coming months and so sold only 25% of my crop. I am from MP and the kind of crop I witnessed around gave me the confidence in predicting future prices and NCDEX prices also helped me in it. I am very happy and want prices to be like it always.

Manish Banediya

Governemnt is giving loan on 0% these days. So no farmers nowadays sells his crop right away. This price rise has benefitted us immensely and we are very happy. Farmers are not organized, so SOPA is saying anything. We all farmers see NCDEX prices on television channels and get an idea of where the prices are heading. So, we knew the prices are to rise and so most of the farmers kept his stock and now selling on huge profits. After the divastation we saw in wheat, the price rise in soyabean has come as a life saver to the farmes.

Arjun Singh

This time farmers have indeed benefitted by the recent price rise. As the crop was not up to the mark this year, we had a fair idea of the upcoming rise in prices. Besides, I use to see NCDEX prices too and that also gave me a signal of this price trend. So, I had not sold out much of my crop and now I have reaped the profit by selling it in markets.

Firoz Patel

The beneficiaries are only 10-20% big farmers, who are also traders. Most of the farmers are not in position to hold their crop that much longer and they sell 70-80% of their produce within one month of harvesting.

AGRiM Sauda has been a welcome initiative. It has been the first ever constructive step taken towards reducing counter-party risks involved in commodity-based forward trading. AGRiM Sauda will help physical market participants expand their business, provided this market sees improved liquidity and bid-ask quotes entered are more realistic. AGRiM Sauda opens up an additional channel for giving and taking deliveries. At present, futures market facilitates deliveries based on lot-IDs. Sellers who have executed these deliveries are not known. If sellers’ identities are revealed, buyers can synchronise deliveries received on futures platform with forward platform. Once liquidity builds up in this segment, it will be easy to track demand and supply in niche/remote markets. For instance, if a sugar buyer from Rajasthan enters the quote in the online forward trading system, he can be easily contacted. Exchange traded forwards can also facilitate tracking the sugar supplies, if millers use this platform instead issuing tenders to release sugar stocks. To increase participation on this platform, more awareness needs to be created among physical market participants. Trading terminals can be made more user-friendly by applying commodity-wise filters. This will enable traders interested in sugar to see the quotes inserted only for sugar. Additionally, provision can be made to get the details of trade reflected on the right-hand side of the screen once the trader clicks on a particular trade of his interest.

Young India Trader Program was a fabulous program in two aspects: Our people got the confidence that all is not lost, the commodity market is still there and they could sense the passion in your team . It was the fantastic updation in terms of knowledge building. I am sure this kind of program is a real confidence booster and at the same time it opened our eyes that exchange is working day n night to make it a real game changer. Thank you for your unfelling support.

Mahesh Deshmukh

The system to mitigate counterparty risk is very good. The margin you take is very much assuring that the risk is at minimum level. Earlier we could do forward trading in only our own geographical area. But certainly, the forward platform of NCDEX has provided us a truly national market. With the view of doing business, it is a easy way. But the participants should grow. Then only the speed of business can increase. Currently the contracts can be done in either fixed price or the reference price. Reference price allows more flexibility. But however the future contact's lower volumes makes future's price unfit to be used as a fair reference price. So improving volumes in future's contacts is essential for a smooth functioning forwards market. Main advantage of this new channel of delivery is the flexibility. Earlier, with future platform, a trader even if having a very good quality of commodity couldn’t sell it on NCDEX if it didn’t match the exchange specification. Now that compulsion has gone. This point has not been understood. If you have a better quality than NCDEX and there is a buyer who appreciates that and is ready to give a premium for it, both the buyer and seller can come together on the forwards platform which otherwise would not have been possible on the futures platform. We need to have more buyer on the platform. NCDEX should work for increasing participation, then only the price discovery mechanism will be set right.

Mr. Kalpesh Patel

GOLDHEDGE is a very useful and relevant contract being launched by NCDEX particularly in view of the physical delivery constraints being faced by the physical players and the fact that the contract is intention matching contract, therefore the outstanding position would be cash settled. Thus, this would prove to be a very effective hedging and risk management tool for importers, traders, jewelers and exporters. Since the contract value would exclude custom duty & local taxes therefore, the total value of the contract is less as compared to the other existing contract of the same quantity

Naveen Mathur
Associate Director - Commodities and Currencies, Angel Broking

GOLDHEDGE is a very good contract and the kind of sync it has with the international market makes it exciting. Cost effectiveness is the other positive to the contract and this is a big step towards making the gold contract more feasible for different types of investors in India.

Suresh Nair
Executive Director, ADMISI Commodities Pvt. Ltd.

GOLDHEDGE contract appeals to hedgers and I would see this getting good participation going forward.

Kunal Shah
Head - Research, Nirmal Bang Commodities

GOLDHEDGE provides a wonderful opportunity for traders who are not looking for physical deliveries to invest in gold by tracking the international markets without worrying about local premium, taxes, etc. A simple contract where all they need to do is focus on the international market

Renisha Chenani
Manager- Research, Edelweiss Comtrade Ltd

GOLDHEDGE is a win-win situation for all participants in the commodities market. This contract can revive market confidence and commodity business in 2014.

Manoj Kumar Jain
President - Commodities & Forex, Indianivesh Commodities Pvt Limited

GOLDHEDGE contract has two benefits- one it’s cost-effective as it exempts import duty and other local taxes and secondly, unnecessary premium/discount related distortions does not arise in this contract which is important for traders and hedgers

Mr. Ajay Kedia
Director, Kedia Commodity Comtrade Pvt Ltd.

NCDEX's gold-hedge contract is the perfect solution for those who are not looking for physical deliveries to invest in gold by tracking the international markets without worrying about local premium, taxes, etc. The new Gold Hedge contract will give the true picture of Hedging and address the anomalies created by the physical markets in futures prices to provide a correct benchmark and allow wider participation in the gold market. I appreciate NCDEX for the same and looking forward to get good participation.

Mr. Dharmesh Bhatia
Deputy Vice President – Research, Kotak Commodities Services Ltd.

NCDEX GOLDHEDGE is a perfect contract for hedging on COMEX. Being an intention-matching contract, the delivery is optional and hence GOLDHEDGE is a good instrument for speculation. Moreover, it is an appropriately timed contract and has potential to become a new benchmark for gold prices, provided it sees reasonable liquidity.

Ms. Rajni Panicker
Head of Commodity Research, Phillip Commodities India Pvt Ltd.

GOLDHEDGE is a pure play of gold price movement in the international market.,br> Expiry of this contract is aligned to currency futures expiry, and hence it provides for arbitrage opportunities. Additionally and importantly, it serves as a good tool for hedging; especially at time when hedging in gold has become crucial in light of the new gold import policies.
GOLDHEDGE contract is also in sync with government as well as RBI’s efforts at looking at alternative avenues to investing in gold other than physical purchases.

Bhushan Mendiratta
Director, Yug Commodities

GOLDHEDGE is the best hedging mechanism because in case of other contracts in the market there are a lot of distortions due to import restrictions which make them unattractive for hedgers.

Suresh Arora
Director, Raghunandan Industries

First time we have a GOLDHEDGE contract which has international parity, low cost, without any manipulations and hassles. We expect it to get a lot of volume
