Despite the launch of commodity derivatives by BSE and NSE in October 2018, both exchanges have failed to generate enough volumes to topple MCX from the top. On the contrary, MCX has improved market share in FY19 and retained its market leadership position with share at 91.6% (89.58% in FY18).
MCX’s Q4FY19 average daily traded value (ADTV) has been higher by 1.4% QoQ and 13.3% YoY at Rs 26,981 crore, the highest in 5 years. This signal continued recovery from the lows of Q1FY18 and led by uptrend in bullion (up 28% YoY, driven by volumes) and energy (up 28% YoY, driven by high crude prices).
Also, Aashika highlights that, MCX Q4FY19 numbers came broadly in line with consensus estimates except net profitability which came ahead of estimate on account of one-time tax reversal. Revenue during the quarter grew by 2.9% QoQ at Rs 79.1 crore, led by 1.4% QoQ increase in volume and 0.5% increase in realizations. Volume growth during FY19 recovered strongly by growing 22.5% vs decline of 6.5% in FY18.
