Analysts attributed the fall in copper futures to profit-booking by speculators who trimmed their positions at existing levels amid subdued demand at the domestic spot markets but a firm trend at the London Metal Exchange (LME), capped the losses.
At the LME, three-month copper was up 0.2 per cent at USD 6,810.50 per tonne.
