Stressing on the importance of price risk management tools offered by MCX, Mr. T. G. Senthilvelan, Assistant Vice President-Business Development, MCX said, “Since the last few years, the global economic slowdown and uncertainty surrounding the India Rupee have had spillover effect on commodity prices in India, especially base metals in the form of higher volatility, which the hedging platform of MCX can effectively help manage. Further, the exchange has the most efficient and cost-effective platform for price discovery and price-risk management, which allows the market participants to manage their price exposures in the most economic manner possible.”

“The need and demand for hedging among the SMEs, and MSMEs has been increasing as a result of rise in price volatility in base metals. Also, through these awareness initiative taken by commodity exchanges, participants are now realizing the importance of hedging and, the implications/impact, volatility may have on their businesses”, Mr. Sekar added.
