COMEX Copper slipped today amid mixed global equities. Weak economic data capped the upside for the metal after the recent rally. The metal remained in a choppy mood in Europe after Eurozone gross domestic product grew 0.4% sequentially in the first quarter, slower than the 0.7% expansion seen a quarter ago, according to a flash estimate from Eurostat. On a yearly basis, GDP growth slowed to 2.5%, from 2.8% a quarter ago. Earlier in the day, data from China showed that China industrial output rose 7% on year in April, up from 6% in March. However, the Chinese retail sales increased by 9.4%, down from 10.1% in the previous month. Another critical data from the largest copper importing nation showed that its fixed asset investment rose 7% on year, down from 7.5% a month earlier. COMEX Copper is currently trading at $ 3.07 per pound, down 0.42% on the day. However, MCX Copper futures stayed elevated on a weak Indian Rupee. MCX Copper is currently trading at Rs 465.75 per kg, up 0.44% on the day. INR fell to a 16 month low near 68 per US dollar mark today, keeping the domestic copper prices higher even as global futures slipped.
