Copper futures fall 0.10% on weak global cues

NEW DELHI, June 5: Copper futures fell 0.10 per cent to Rs 464.85 per kg today as speculators trimmed their positions amid a weak trend in global markets.
Muted demand from consuming industries at domestic spot market also put pressure on prices.

The metal for delivery in far-month August shed 40 paise, or 0.09 per cent, to Rs 469.90 per kg, in a business volume of 8 lots.
