MCX: Good contra buy..

Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) today fell sharply in the initial trade to 481 but recovered in the late trade to close at 497. Arrest of Jignesh Shah last evening had triggered this fall in MCX. His arrest won’t have any direct impact on MCX stock but its stake sale process could be further delayed. With FMC declaring FT group not fit and proper to run any exchange, it had to divest it’s 24 percent holding in MCX. But now all that stake sale process could take even more time.

MCX is the country’s biggest exchange in terms of market share. Despite all the troubles after NSEL crisis exchange has been able to hold market share around 84-85 per cent. Since the introduction of Commodity Transaction Tax (CTT) in last year’s budget, volumes have dipped drastically. MCX is leader in bullion trading (Gold & Silver) and with the introduction of duties to curb bullion demand also had an impact on exchange volumes.

I was bit late in buying into MCX stock with my first buy at 394 Rs rather than below 300. But after that I kept on buying at every decline. Today was no such exception. My reason for buying was simple – Monopoly position, clean balance sheet, depressed volumes which should recover, lifting of gold import curbs, biggest of all -change in FCRA which will allow MCX to offer trading in options.
