Good Evening Sir,
I am paid subscriber member of your investment advices. I wish to know where to go for register complaints against Dabba trading because here so many virtual trading are running.
Too much unrealistic speculation is going into NCDEX in Guar and Guar Gum business. Without any concrete reason Guar market rise 40% in last three weeks. which has badly impact on export business which is already passing thru worst conditions for last 5 years. Everyday upper circuit and lower circuit are putting in this commodity.
Please do needful in this matter and stop these activities in NCDEX otherwise our nation will have to loose FOREX form this business forever.
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.
