The agricultural indices used in the study are Dhaanya- which provides a reliable benchmark for the traded agri-commodities in NCDEX and MCX AGRI- which is a group index of agricultural commodities traded in MCX. The Pearsons correlation and ordinary least squares are applied to understand the impact of agricultural indices on sensex. Granger Causality test is applied to understand the dynamic causal relationship between the variables. The study takes into account the daily closing values of agricultural index of NCDEX (Dhaanya) and MCX ( MCXAGRI). The period of the study is 01/01/2014 to 31/12/2015.
