MCX is primarily a futures exchange. Options are relatively new and the volumes are yet to pick up. The most actively traded commodity options in terms of Avg daily  turnover are:

  1. Gold - 3717 Cr.
  2. Crude Oil - 565 Cr.
  3. Silver - 390 Cr.
  4. Copper - 2 Cr.
  5. Zinc - 0.44 Cr.

In terms of OI (Jan 2021), it is as below:

  1. Crude
  2. Copper
  3. Silver
  4. Gold
  5. Zinc

All in all, commodity options are nascent but there's a lot of scope for growth. Given the fact that intraday leverage will be completely phased out in F&O by 1st Sep 2021, it makes sense for retail traders to consider trading in options.
