Reduced Supply in the Spot Market Supports Turmeric Gains


Motivated by dwindling supply in the spot market, turmeric prices spiked by 2.38% during yesterday’s trading session, ultimately finishing at 15666. Sluggish purchasing activity on expectations of stock releases ahead of the new harvest season, however, limited the rise.

A more complex picture emerges from export data, showing a 2.27% decrease in turmeric shipments from April to December 2023 as compared to the same period in 2022. Nonetheless, exports increased significantly in December 2023, up 21.47% from November 2023, despite falling 13.41% from December 2022. Turmeric prices closed at 14461.8 Rupees in the spot market, its indicating a strong gain of 2.06%.

Technically speaking, there appears to be new purchasing impetus in the market as seen by a spike in open interest and a notable price increase. Resistance is anticipated around 15942, with a possible breakout leading to additional price exploration towards 16218. Support levels are seen at 15346, with a possible test of 15026.
