Until 2015, commodity futures market was regulated by Forward Market Commission (FMC).In 2015, after the merger of FMC with Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), SEBIbecame the regulator of commodity future market. Commodity Exchanges play a vital role inpromoting growth, transparency and efficiency of the commodity futures markets. This role isdefined by their functions, infrastructure capabilities, trading procedures, settlement and riskmanagement practices.
FY 2020 was steeped with uncertainties for India’s commodity markets. A slackenedgrowth of the economy, US-China trade war, weak currency due to frequent monetary easingand downgrades by multiple agencies, and a firm dollar as compared to rupee and theaggravated US-Iran war-like conditions, are some of the factors which have led to thecommodity markets lacklustre performance.
In the last month of FY 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic developed rapidly into a global crisis,forcing governments to enforce lock-downs of all economic activity.Despite the lockdown, a protracted return to normalcy was seen by August 2020. Theunprecedented scale and scope of policy responses will undoubtedly help to limit the extent ofthe collapse and will help the post-crisis recovery.
Recently, SEBI has taken various steps to boost commodity derivative market. In a majordecision to strengthen commodity market, SEBI permitted mutual funds to participate incommodity futures along with PMS. It enabled mutual funds and portfolio managers toparticipate in the agri and non-agri commodity derivatives segments (CDS). Earlier, AlternativeInvestment Funds (AIFs) were allowed to trade in commodities futures. Notablepoliciesinitiatives have been allowing commodity options, allowing foreign entities to hedge theirexposure on commodity in Indian commodity exchanges and allowing introduction ofcommodity indices trade.
Other than the response to the Covid-19 pandemic, major factors to impact Indian commoditymarkets in the coming year include resurrection in consumption demand, growth led by policyreforms, move towards digitization and monetary stance of central banks of major economies,and economic and trade policies. Coupled with strong demographic dividend and economicgrowth, consumer demand conditions in the country will remain strong for a long period.Additionally, stable fiscal situation, moderate inflation rate, exports growth, rising FDI inflowspoint towards fundamental stability in the economy, which augurs well for the markets
