  • Annual Commodity Report 2017 3


    Dear Readers

    At the beginning of the year 2017, it gives me immense pleasure to release 9th edition of Karvy Comtrades Annual Commodity Report 2017. In the last eight years, this report has received an overwhelming response from the readers including academicians, traders, investors, market participants and other stakeholders who are engaged in the commodity trade either directly or indirectly. This report offers a comprehensive outlook on all the commodities traded on the Indian exchanges for the year 2017, which will guide the market participants to maximize their profits. The outlook presented in the report has been formulated infusing the fundamental and technical analysis. We believe this report would provide you a deeper understanding of the commodity markets and facilitate knowledge-based investment for the year 2017.

    The year 2016 was a silver lining in the commodity market as most of the commodities gave a positive return shrugging off earlier years of negative returns. Base metals sector was the best performing sector as the prices of few metals rallied to multi year highs due to strong economic growth across the world. Besides, the world market witnessed few important events like Britain exiting the European Union, US Presidential Election as well as demonetization of high value cur-rency by the Indian government. All these events had a ripple effect on the commodities in the immediate short term.

    The report starts with overall commodity market outlook for 2017 taking the events that hap-pened in 2016 as a benchmark. This report covers all the major commodities traded on Indian ex-change, which are having maximum trade participation. Sectors covered in this report are bullion, energy, base metals, oilseeds, spices, softs and cereals.

    While preparing the report, all the macro and micro factors affecting the market movement are taken into consideration in order to derive outlook in terms of direction of the market as well as entry and exit levels for the year 2017. Further, the report is prepared in a most simple man-ner so that all sections of the trading fraternity can benefit from understanding the report. In order to attract the readers attention, we have made this report statistics driven by using tables, graphs, pie-charts etc. Each commodity starts with the review of previous year followed by an in-depth analysis of various fundamental factors and concludes with long term outlook. Further, to strengthen the fundamental outlook, advanced technical analysis has been carried out to de-termine the entry exit levels for each commodity.

    Finally, the success of this report goes to all research analysts who have worked extensively to come out with a long term outlook and make this report a grand success and insightful. I would also like to acknowledge the efforts put in by Mr. Vijayendra Kumar in designing this report.

    I wish all our readers a prosperous New Year with peace and happiness in your personal and professional endeavours and to maximize your wealth.

    A Very Happy New Year 2017 from Karvy Comtrade Ltd.

    Thank you and good luck.
