At the Multi Commodity Exchange, copper for delivery in April was trading lower by 75 paise, or 0.17 percent, to Rs 447.05 per kg in a business turnover of 1,632 lots.

Analysts said a weak trend in most industrial metals on the London Metal Exchange (LME), as investors stayed on the sidelines ahead of the outcome of the US Federal Reserve rate meeting later in the day, kept pressure on copper prices at futures trade here.
