NSE Commodities on FYERS: A New Era in Indian Trading

Exploring the unexplored has always been the most challenging yet interesting way of building a business, especially if you're a long established market leader—truly, a bold move! Moreover, Guess what?

The NSE has taken this challenge head-on by introducing commodity derivatives to its extensive trading repertoire. As a consistent leader in derivatives trading — particularly as the champion of equity derivatives — the NSE is now expanding its horizon. At this juncture, we are thrilled to announce our latest offering – NSE Commodities trading on FYERS, marking a significant shift in the Indian trading landscape. A new realm of trading opportunities, contrasting with the long-established equity derivatives market.

NSE Commodities vs MCX: A Comparative Study of Crude Oil Futures

The NSE, a powerhouse in equity derivatives, has ventured into the commodity derivatives market, making way to a new era for traders. To fully grasp the significance of NSE Commodities on FYERS, let's draw a comparison with the MCX (Multi Commodity Exchange) platform. These two giants in the commodities trading arena offer unique advantages and opportunities that set them apart. 

Now, let's take an example for detailed comparative analysis, focusing on trading the futures of WTI (West Texas Intermediate) Crude Oil on NSE and MCX Crude Oil. Here's the monthly trading volumes for WTI Crude Oil on NSE Commodities and MCX Crude Oil:

As you can see, the modest trading volumes of NSE commodities, when compared with the MCX volumes, are indicative of a market that is in its infancy but poised for growth. This growth potential is especially pertinent given NSE's established infrastructure and widespread acceptance among traders.

But Wait, This Isn't The Full Picture!

While the MCX seem to be dominant in the commodity derivative space, the equity derivatives trading has been the one dominating the F&O segment in the Indian markets, primarily on NSE followed by BSE.

In 2023, the daily trading volumes in equity derivatives was an impressive ₹31,17,746.32 crores, overshadowing the commodity derivatives which stood at just ₹1,55,511.74 crores. This disparity of almost 20x not only reflects market preferences but also underscores the growth potential in the commodity derivatives sector.
