RAPAPORT... Trading in diamond futures is on course to launch in March after the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) gave its in-principle approval for the platform.  

The decision, which is still subject to certain regulatory approvals, comes after the government said on September 28, diamonds can be included in a list of commodities that are used in derivatives trading. 

Trading will take place on the Indian Commodity Exchange (ICEX) in three categories of diamond futures: 0.30 carats, 0.50 carats and 1 carat.

Futures will help sellers hedge volatility in polished prices, the ICEX said last week.
