  3. Dear Sir,

    I would like to point out your attention for unusual speculation in Guar and Guar Gum in NCDEX.

    In last few months speculators stockists are playing with Guar and Gum and every day 5-8% and more price changing which has result export demand desperately came down and India who needs Forex for their routine need is loosing big amount of Forex.
    Our competitor Pakistan is getting maximum business as there is a price difference of 400-600 USD/MT. Hence most of the international market demand has diverted to Pakistan. This year crop of Guar is very good due to good monsoon. But speculators are too much active hence price volatility in last few months are extreme and export business is badly effected. Kindly look into the matter and suspend guar and Guar gum from NCDEX without any delay to save this Forex earning industry.
