(Reuters) – Copper fell on Wednesday as concerns about Spain’s debt troubles kept investors cautious, although hopes the Federal Reserve could offer more stimulus for the U.S. economy helped support the outlook for demand and limit falls in base metals.
Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange (LME) traded at $7,565.50 in official rings, down from Tuesday’s close of $7,609 a tonne.
The metal used in power and construction is down more than 10 percent so far this quarter and is trading 0.3 percent lower for the year to date.
