Copper in London Drops for First Day in Three on Stocks, Oil

June 06, 2011

June 7 (Bloomberg) -- Copper declined for the first time in three days, joining a drop in global equities and other commodities including oil, on speculation slowing economic growth may trim metals demand.

The metal for three-month delivery fell as much as 0.4 percent to $9,100 a metric ton by 8:03 a.m. Singapore time. The metal had risen 2.4 percent in the past two days on concern output disruptions in Chile may worsen an expected shortage of the metal this year.
