ICEX launched derivatives in diamond and steel as India was a major player in both the commodities. India has a 70% share in cutting and polishing of diamonds and in steel we are the second largest market. The company has daily turnover of Rs 100 crore in diamond contracts and Rs 20 crore in steel. It is looking at a daily turnover of Rs 500-600 crore in diamond alone by the next quarter with Sebi approving foreign entities having actual exposure to Indian physical commodity markets to trade in the commodity market .
Last year, ICEX had merged with National Multi Commodity Exchange (NMCE) creating the country’s third biggest commodity exchange. NMCE rubber contracts started trading in ICEX post Sebi approval. Volumes and open interest are seen increasing consistently in rubber post the merger.
