Most commodities on the Exchange closed higher during the most recent trading week. Commodity prices increased by an average of 0.31% week over week, with ginger leading the gainers’ chart with gains of 5.05%.
As processors enter the market after the election season, prices on the open market are returning to normal. With the exception of cocoa, which remained unchanged, this has caused the price of the majority of commodities to rise on the open market week over week.
The AEI climbed slightly by 0.83%, completing the week at 224.04 index points, while the ACI slightly decreased by 0.57% to close at 476.25 index points. We expect commodities prices to rise further this week as market activity is expected to pick up as processors increase demand and cash is more easily accessible.
