Barley prices closed lower by 2.28 per cent on Wednesday at the National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange Limited (NCDEX) as the investors booked profits at the higher on account of the weak physical markets and also due to the fall in the demand from beer and cattle-feed makers. At the NCDEX, barley futures for August 2015contract closed at Rs. 1,112 per quintal, down by 2.28 per cent, after opening at Rs. 1,132 against the previous closing price of Rs. 1,138. It touched the intra-day low of Rs. 1,109.

 

Sentiment weakened further on account of a surge in the arrivals of the commodity along with the sluggish demand on higher levels.
