Date : Jan 17 2020
Traders attribute the upward price trend to increased online sales and futures market coupled with a rising pressure exerted by local buyers. Exporters and upcountry buyers were inactive in the market. However, the Pongal festival mood seems to have dampened the spirits of auctions as the arrivals was only at 62 tonnes and traders are expecting similar trend to continue in the coming days. The holidays have kept most of the traders away from the market. The market is going to witness lean months shortly, but buyers are expecting one more round of crop in the market till February following the final round of harvest in this season. In the morning session, the auctioneers Sungandhagiri Spices Promoters and Traders offered 22.49 tonnes in 122 lots and the quantity sold was 21.82 tonnes.
