Mumbai, Jan 22 (UNI) Both the metal categories, ferrous and non-ferrous, declined today on lack of fresh demand in Delhi and Kolkata, traders at the Bombay Metal Exchange (BME) said.
Copper utensils slashed by Rs 300 per quintal while copper heavy, brass utensils and brass cuttings moved down by Rs 200 per quintal each, due to sustained heavy selling pressure.
However, aluminium utensils remained unchanged on moderate demand.
In the non-ferrous metal category, copper wire bar edged down by Rs 200 and zinc slab fell by Rs 100 per quintal because of poor buying support.
