Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Jeera prices fell by Rs 410 to close at Rs 21,370 per quintal in futures trade today as speculators booked profits at prevailing levels amid muted domestic and export demand.

Reports of good sowing conditions in and amid ample stocks position following higher supplies from the producing regions also fuelled the downtrend.

In futures trading at the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange, jeera for this month fell Rs 410, or 1.88 per cent, to close at Rs 21,370 per quintal with an open interest of 12,462 lots.

Similarly, the spice for delivery in January moved down by Rs 275, or 1.27 per cent, to end at Rs 21,345 per quintal in 3,078 lots.

Analysts said besides profit-booking by speculators at existing levels, fall in demand at the spot market against adequate stocks position kept pressure on jeera prices at futures trade.
