Mumbai, Jan 9 (PTI) Multi Commodity Exchange of India (MCX) today said it has signed an agreement with The All India Glass Manufacturers' Federation (AIGMF) for market development in the energy futures segment.


"We are delighted to be associated with AIGMF. By virtue of this MoU, market participants would be imparted knowledge about derivatives market through series of staff training and commodity awareness programmes, which will engender confidence in them to hedge their price exposures," MCX Managing Director and CEO Lamon Rutten said in a release issued here.


This MoU aims to provide fundamental and technical training to the market participants, develop and provide services and facilities for the overall improvement of the commodity futures market and market practices, particularly in the energy segment. Crude oil by-products is used as an energy source in the glass melting furnaces, therefore, crude oil price volatility impacts the bottom line of the glass manufacturers.
