According to traders, there were enquiries both from exporters and their intermediaries for the purchase of quality cardamom. Since it is the fag end of the season, there may be apprehension that some compromise on quality of the commodity could be made.

This, coupled with low arrivals to the auctions also enhanced the sentiments as the quantity on offer was low at 81 tonnes compared to more than 100 tonnes in the last few weeks. The changes in the weather pattern in the growing tracts from a wet weather to bright sunny day also helped the market to regain the negative feeling.
