Jeera prices rose by 1 per cent, to Rs 190 per quintal, in futures trade Tuesday after participants widened positions on rising demand amid firm trend overseas.
Restricted supplies in the domestic spot market and some export enquiries, too, supported the uptrend.
At the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange, jeera delivery for December traded higher by Rs 160, or 0.85 per cent, to Rs 18,900 per quintal with an open interest of 2811 lots.
Likewise, the contract for January next year increased by Rs 190, or 1 per cent, to Rs 19,180 per quintal with an open interest of 2,187 lots.
Traders said speculative positions built up by participants amid pick-up in domestic spot markets mainly influenced jeera prices here.
