Copper prices fell further by Rs 3 per kg at the non-ferrous metal market today largely on weak global cues amid muted demand from consuming industries.
Traders said apart from a weak trend overseas on profit- taking, rising inventories at the exchange's warehouses, nervousness about demand in China and a higher dollar.
Besides, subdued demand from consuming industries at domestic markets too weighed on copper prices.
Copper for delivery in three month ended lower 1.9 per cent at USD 6,543 a metric tonne at the London Metal Exchange yesterday.
