Welcome Dr. Shubhadip,

You have some knowledge of trading as you have traded equities. You only need to know the products and their lot sizes. We can work in your learning. Would you need any help, write them in precise about what is your question and I will give the necessary details.

Thank you, Dr. Shubhadeep.

For the technical details about lot size and contract values you can visit MCX website and NCDEX websites. Any other details I can help you out. You can trade Gold, it is one of the liquid commodities in the market. There are 3 lot sizes , you can start small and then go for the full contract.

Do PM me your mail Id I will keep in touch with you on all your requirements.

gg is the cheapest, it is 8grms gold and single unit lot. Margin today is around 600 per lot. Every point move will give you a rupee gain or loss.

MCX has good volumes in metals and energy. While NCDEX is more into Agri based products. Though MCX also trades some of the agri products.

commodity trading is slightly different, but you won't have problem adapting.

as in any day trading endeavor, make sure your brokerage is bare minimum.

broadly commodities are agri and non-agri:
MCX is good for trading in Energy, Bullion and Metals, while NCDEX is good for agri futures trading.
Pick a couple of commodities, observe them and find out triggers [news, seasonality etc] about them, read their charts and paper trade for a couple of days. And you are good to go.....
for more details on lot size, expiry date, etc visit mcxindia website.

Cardomom is very strong on the bearish side from the beginning of the current expiry. It is likely to re-test lows. It is trending, It is advisable to hold on and if there is a close above 1436 (on today's values), only then it is expected to reverse to Long.

If need arises you may rollover as the expiry is coming close.

Cardamom gets its reversal signal to trade long. Go long above 1647 on current contract value, but trade in the next contract. Weekly charts have strength but the back of the bull is broken. The next move will be the last on the bullish side. And there would be opportunities to have a nice bear trend from there.
