Cautious sentiment as trading slows ahead of the Christmas break. Fewer foreign buyers in the market. Demand concentrated on SI-I1 goods. Rough market restrained as manufacturers are holding large polished inventory, particularly lower-value goods. Small diamond and jewelry businesses under stress due to weaker rupee, tight credit and low profit margins.
