Barley down on NCDEX taking cues from spot market.

Barley contracts on the NCDEX were down, tracking weakness in the spot market of Jaipur. On the NCDEX, the most-active June contract traded down 0.7%. In Jaipur, the benchmark market, prices fell because demand from the malt industry was restricted following concerns over quality of the arrivals. A rise in stocks at the exchange warehouses also weighed on the sentiment.
