Lead futures down 0.66 pc hurt by muted demand

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Lead prices were trading down 0.66 per cent to Rs 134.55 per kg amid muted domestic demand in futures trading today as participants trimmed exposure.

Lead for delivery in May declined by 90 paise, or 0.66 per cent, to Rs 134.55 per kg in a business turnover of 190 lots.

Similarly, the metal for delivery in June shed 85 paise, or 0.63 per cent, to Rs 135.10 per kg in six lots.

Marketmen said the fall in lead futures was due to a weak trend at the domestic markets owing to muted demand from consuming industries, particularly, battery-makers.
