The IFEAT conference is about to commence in San Francisco where a number of us from De Monchy will be present.

July Market Report
A major factor affecting the markets this month is the rate of exchange, with the US dollar reaching a high of US$1 to 62 rupees .Earlier in the month this resulted in low export prices but in the later part of the month the national bank of India has taken measures to redress the trend. If these measures are effectual, commodity prices will be supported by the currency. At the time of writing the rupee /dollar exchange is back down between 59 and 60.
