Brief description about commodity trading in IndiaThe concept of Commodity Trading is not new inIndia. Commodity Trading was very much existent in earlier times in India. In fact itwas one the most vibrant forms of markets till the early 70s.However due to numerousrestrictions the Commodity Trading market could not develop further. Recently most of these restrictions have been removed, and therefore this allows for the development and growth of the commodity market in India. The usefulness of Commodity Trading in futures is that itresults in transparent and fair price discovery onaccount of large-scale participations ofentities associated with different value chains. It also reflects views and expectations of a wider section of people who may be related to aparticularcommodity. Commodity Trading in futures alsoprovides an effective platform forprice riskmanagement to all the segments ofplayers who participate in the Commodity Trading ranging from producers, traders and processors toexporters/importers and end-users of a commodity. Commodity Trading also provides hedging, tradingand arbitrage opportunities to market players. The Forward Markets Commission (FMC) is the regulatory body for Commodity Trading in futures/forward trade in India. The ForwardMarkets Commission is responsible for regulating and promoting futures trade in commodities. The FMC has its headquarters in Mumbai and the regional office is located in Kolkata. There are some 21 commodity exchanges in India. But most ofthese commodity exchanges are regional, offline and commodity specific. The government has recently allowed four national level multi-commodity exchanges to trade inallpermitted commodities.Commodity ExchangesA brief description of commodity exchanges are those which trade inparticularcommodities, neglecting the trade of securities, stock indexfutures and options etc. In the middle of 19thcentury in the United States, businessmen began organizing market forums to makethe buying andselling of commodities easier. These central marketplaces provided a place forbuyers and sellers to meet,set qualityand quantity standards, and establish rules ofbusiness. Agricultural commodities were mostly traded but as longas there are buyers and sellers, any commodity can be traded. In 1872, a groupof Manhattan dairy merchants got together to bring chaotic condition in New York market to a system in terms of storage, pricing, and transfer of agricultural products. In 1933, during theGreat Depression, the Commodity Exchange, Inc., was established in New York through the merger of four small exchanges theNational Metal Exchange, the Rubber Exchange of New York, the National Raw Silk Exchange, and the New York Hide Exchange. The major commodity markets are in the United Kingdom and in the USA. In India there are 25 recognized future exchanges, of which there are three national level multi-commodity exchanges.After a gap ofalmost three decades, Government of India hasallowed forward transactions in commodities through Online Commodity Exchanges, a modification of traditional business knownas Adhat and Vayda Vyapar to facilitate better risk coverage and delivery ofcommodities.

Indian economy is riding high enjoying 8% growth rate; and theindustrial and agricultural sectors are doing well. We are also enjoying favourableforeign exchange balances. Even so, the producer or the farmer does not get hisdue for a host of reasons. One among them is the middlemen and mediators tryingto hoodwink the producer about thereasonable price and the producers inability towait for the right price forlack of infrastructural facilities.Though there is a spot market for many commodities to secure immediate price, italways results in the producer settling for a loss. Similarly even if a farmer waitsfor a futures contract to get a reasonable price, his ignorance of the market putshim in a disadvantageous position. MCX and NCDEX were formed in answer tothese problems faced by the producers and farmers.Introduction to MCX:MCX:refers toMulti Commodity Exchangewhich facilitates trading in a varietyofcommoditiesinthecountry.Thisisanindependentcommodityexchangeoperating in India with its base in Mumbai.
