Mixed performances for crops and grains on the Commodities Exchange

The Exchange’s performance in the most recent trading week was inconsistent. The lagging chart was led by Paddy Rice, which saw a slight fall of 0.40% w-o-w.

In the meantime, most commodities saw price increases on the open market. Sesame was the biggest gainer, increasing by a significant 3.34% week-over-week. Due to a lack of demand, soybean prices have been trending downward. This pattern is probably going to hold this week.
