The AFEX Commodities Index composite closed at 163.65 points in the week under review. The index performance remained stable across all commodities covered by the index.

In the open market, the supply of commodities has been greatly affected by the lockdown currently taking place in parts of the country. Restriction of movement has stopped many farmers from bringing their commodities into the market and this has led to a shortage of supply in the market. The number of deals is reducing in the market as farmer prices are getting higher than quotes from buyers.

Farmer prices are getting higher than processor quotes making it difficult for me as a merchant to secure goods.
