Zinc slumps on sluggish demand prospects

By Religare

Zinc futures fell by 0.37 per cent to Rs 108.35 per kg today as speculators reduced positions in the midst of a weak trend globally. Besides, low demand in domestic spot markets fuelled the downtrend. Zinc futures for November 2015 contract, at MCX, were trading at Rs 108.35 per kg, down by 0.37 per cent after opening at Rs. 108.75 against the previous closing price of Rs. 108.75. It touched the intra-day low of Rs. 108.05 till the trading. (At 4.25 PM today).


However, losses were limited due to the decline in the zinc stockpiles at the London Metal Exchange (LME) on account of the strong demand for the commodity. LME zinc stocks fell by 1500 metric tonnes to 567600 metric tonnes as on November 6, 2015.

Major refined zinc exporting countries are Canada, Australia and Rep. of Korea, while major refined zinc importing countries are China, USA and Germany.
