Hi @nithin may you please add pepper to the brokerage calculator. Brokerage calculator is easier to understand than the MCX website :slight_smile:

Meanwhile, can you answer for every 1 Rs. movement in price of Pepper, how much will be the move in position? E.g. CrudeoilM has a change of Rs. 10 in position for every 1 Rs. move in price.

We will get added. Pepper is a 1 MT (metric ton) contract or 1000 KG. Quotation/Base value is per 100 kg.

So every Rs change will mean P&L of Rs 10 on the pepper contract.
