Market this week shows early effects of the ongoing lock down witnessed across the country as all commodity prices on the exchange remained neutral in the week under review.


This is as a result of reduced order for these commodities on the exchange. We anticipate an initial slowdown in activities on the exchange as companies recalibrate supply chains and evaluate customer demand levels.
