Metal Shares Melt As Commodity Prices Hammered


Metal shares continued to slide in trade with Hindalco Industries, Vedanta and NMDC hitting a new 52-week low on the National Stock Exchange (NSE).


The drop was largely on account of a tumble in commodity prices in the international markets. The rout in commodity prices was largely on account of fears of a slowing down in the Chinese markets.
