MUMBAI – Despite weak cues from the London Metal Exchange, most base metals rose higher today on the Multi Commodity Exchange of India due to buying by domestic buyers at the lower level.


Commodities in international market attempted some recovery after Tuesday’s sell-off, however, market confidence remains low amid continuing growth worries and coronavirus concerns relating to China, Kotak Securities said in a note.


* “The market appears to be entirely focused on economic slowdown concerns and its impact on metals demand in the immediate to medium term,” Warren Patterson, the head of commodities strategy at ING Economics.


* Market participants are now looking forward to the minutes of the US Federal Reserve’s June meeting, due later today, for further cues on the central bank’s stance on rate hikes.


* ALUMINIUM prices rose due to short-covering by traders on the MCX and a decline in LME stocks.


* ZINC contract gained as smelters resorted to production cuts due to higher energy price.

 –Aluminium was at 206.60 rupees, up 0.1%
