Tender support only short-lived
The last tender had provided some temporary support for sesame seed prices in the Indian domestic market. Now, Indian exporters have successfully participated, but their cover purchases are not enough to continue to firm prices. Instead, both domestic markets and export prices saw significant downward corrections this week. Hulled sesame seeds, 99.95% purity are at a level of USD 2,600/mt CIF Hamburg and unhulled sesame actually fell back to USD 2,435/mt CIF.
