Copper futures slide 0.35% on subdued spot demand
Copper prices moved down by 0.35 per cent to Rs 410.80 per kg in futures trade today as speculators indulged in reducing their positions amid low demand at the spot markets.
Besides, profit-booking kept pressure on metal prices.

Likewise, the metal for delivery in far-month November traded lower by Rs 1.35, or 0.32 per cent, to Rs 417.10 per kg in eight lots.
