Down gradation of Banks and pessimistic economic scenario ahead of key European summit may continue to weaken riskier assets including base metals. The Chinese demand is subdued after the weekend holidays and fundamentally, cancelled warrants may also remain weak and may support downside.
In late evening,the US housing release may improve slightly after slight increase in new home sales and may provide slight pullback while the overall trend may continue to remain bearish

Base Metals Update @ 25.06.12,05:00 PM
As foreseen in our morning report base metal futures have declined 0.5 to 1.1 percent. Weak equities and strong domestic currency have weighed on base metals futures resulting in price fall. The Asian equities closed on a weaker note while the European markets have also joined the declining league.Rising borrowing costs and Greece escape ahead of key Euro-summit may likely weaken the shared currency and may support down trend for base metals. In late evening, the US new home sales may increase slightly and may provide slight pullback in base metals where fresh selling might be initiated.
Overall amidst weak equities and declining manufacturing releases we recommend remaining short for the rest of the session.
