What is Dabba trading (Definition): The investor’s trades [buy/sell orders] do not executed on stock exchanges system but in the dabba operators books only.
Top reason for dabba trading: mainly to save on tax and trading fees. But traders don’t know, dabba trading or trading in commodity (MCX / NCDEX) futures outside the FMC-regulated exchanges is illegal as per the Forward Contracts Regulation Act (FCRA), 1952.
Dabba trading is also risky as it does not provide protection against counterparty default risk as guaranteed by commodity futures exchanges for trades done on them.

IT (Income Tax Department) had raided the offices of MCX and FTIL on June 19, 2007. The CBI is looking into this matter five years after the permission was granted and Sebi chief C B Bhave said “MCX Stock Exchange case, CBI working with ‘crazy logic'”. Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said on Thursday that it had registered a preliminary enquiry against former Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) chief C.B. Bhave, its former whole-time member K.M. Abraham, Multi Commodity Exchange of India Ltd (MCX) and Financial Technologies India Ltd (FTIL).
Our Finance Minister P Chidambaram last words were on this matter, “don’t think CBI has all the facts on Bhave case. I am sure the Sebi records give reasons for why it gave them the licence for currency futures”.
But two days back at evening, Jignesh Shah was taken to CBI headquarters in Mumbai for questioning. The enquiry, in this instance, has been registered in connection with the grant of a licence to MCX Stock Exchange (MCX-SX), which first started operations in 2008 with its currency derivatives segment. Shah was later released by CBI.

Following is an overview of “The Financial Waves Monthly Update” which is a 18 page report and has 12 different charts giving not only Indian but Global outlook using techniques like Elliott wave, Time Cycles, Fibonacci Projections, Channels, Sensex in Gold (real money), PE ratio,PB ratio, etc.
In September we saw strong pullback in Indian markets from lower levels and prices rallied by almost 3000 points on Sensex and 1000 points on Nifty. However, after approaching the multi-year resistance line which has been ending the up move since more than 5 years worked this time as well and prices finally closed the month within the body of previous month. If we ignore the closing and consider only highs and lows we can see a higher high and higher low formation. A move above …………. will be a strong positive sign. Sensex in Gold – real money gives correct picture of why majority of stocks are at new lows!
In current research we have showed Bank Nifty relative chart along with Nifty which shows that why Banking sector as a whole should ……… for months to come. …….that will be starting probably post mid 2014 …
Sensex PE ratio / PB ratioa tool many believe to be a fundamental measure but for us it provides more of technical perspective and helps to understand how markets have been trending along with it.
On currency front, when everyone was panicking we have mentioned 70 levels as very important as it is 1.618 * wave i and we can clearly see prices stopped its uptrend near this level and formed an inside monthly bar. This indicates there is halt in the …..
International precious metals both Gold and Silver has formed a monthly inside bar and should also continue to move sideways for digesting the multi-month down move. This time we are showing Silver long term chart and why this metal should also underperform along with Gold. The euphoria has slowly subsided in previous metals along with Indian currency as well.
US markets have not been doing much and all the negative news about US Government shutdown has not impacted their markets at all. In fact S&P500 closed positive by more than half a percent when the concerns were looming about US default a probability if they fail to raise the debt ceiling. It seems US stock market is not too concerned about what economists believe about Government shutdown and debt, after all for us markets are supreme and news is just a technical indicator.
This time our stock pick from Indian markets is Capital Goods heavy weight L&T and we should have ….. value of this stock in future. Overall, September had lot of emotional flux for both bulls and bears trading Indian markets and was relatively muted for other assets most of which formed an inside bar – DJIA, Gold, Silver!!!
If Richard Fisher, head of the Dallas Fed, is sure of anything it’s that when it comes to monetary policy uncertainty matters.
That was an argument Mr Fisher says he raised last month when his colleagues at the US central bank met to decide whether to pull back the Fed’s stimulus programme.
In a speech on Thursday, Mr Fisher explained that the Fed’s decision not to taper could lead people to question their understanding of the rules:
The recent decision of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to maintain the pace of its large-scale asset purchases in the face of a generally improving labour market outlook and a widespread perception within financial markets, right or wrong, that the Fed had telegraphed a dialing back of the rate of purchases may have increased uncertainty about the future path of monetary policy. That was one argument raised against the decision not to taper. I know, because I made the argument, and I was not alone.
While the Fed’s decision confused the markets last month, Mr Fisher said that bigger surprises – which he calls Black Swans – can create paradigm shifts in the markets and lead to crises. He lists events such as the Great Depression and the 2006 housing market collapse as examples and, worryingly, says that a default on US debt would be in that league:
If the U.S. government defaults on its debt later this month, we’ll have a third example. The unthinkable will have become real, and the “full faith and credit” of the United States will be a mirage rather than accepted fact.
Mr Fisher does not have a vote on the Fed’s Open Market Committee this year.
Jewellery traders in the Tex city are facing a serious slump in their gold business owing to the rising price of the yellow metal on one side and the fall in rupee value on the other side. Worried over the declining sale, traders have demanded that excise duty on the precious metal be reduced, so as to ease imports from other countries, which might help stabilize the rates.
President of the Coimbatore Jewelers Association K Krishnamoorthy said the two major reasons for rise in gold price are the value falling of rupee against the US dollar and the lack of gold metal in the market. “The import of gold was not stopped officially. The excise duty on it was hiked four times in a year. The excise duty in 2012-13 was 4 per cent. It is 10 per cent now. This has let to an increase of 16 per cent in gold price,” said Krishnamoorthy.
“The Central government should reduce the excise duty on gold to the earlier levels of 4 per cent. Only then will the jewellery trade revive,” he added.
“The season from mid-August to Deepavali is the peak period for gold trade. But, the rupee crisis and hike in excise duty has hit the industry at a wrong time,” he complained.
