Copper prices moved down by 0.30 per cent to Rs 426.60 per kg in futures trade today as speculators indulged in reducing their positions to book profits.
Besides, low demand from consuming industries in the spot market weighed on prices.

Likewise, the metal for delivery in August traded lower by Rs 1.20 or 0.28 per cent to Rs 420.85 per kg in 521 lots.
