Copper Tips : Kicking off the week on a bearish note, Copper futures plunged more than 3 per cent in the domestic market on Monday as investors and speculators exited positions in the industrial metal amidst speculation that the fallout of the Greek contagion may hurt global business and investor sentiment, weakening growth in the world economy, adversely impacting copper demand. Majority of Greeks over the weekend voted against further austerity measures demanded by Greece’s creditors, which have ravaged the country’s cash-strapped economy, paving the way for the Mediterranean nation’s exit from the euro with Greece highly unlikely to secure any further European funding.
