MUMBAI (Scrap Register): India major aluminium scrap commodities prices continued to stay flat on Tuesday, while aluminium futures prices at Multi Commodity Exchange settled down due to seasonally weak demand in top metals consumer China and concern that Beijing may not cut rates soon.

India's major scrap commodities like aluminium accessories scrap, aluminium cable scrap, aluminium ingots, aluminium rod company, aluminium rod local, aluminium scrap 6063, aluminium scrap taint/tabor, aluminium sheet cutting, aluminium utensil scrap, aluminium wire scrap remained flat during the day.

From China, producer price deflation moderated further, adding to views that the central bank may be in no hurry to cut interest rates, after the country's exports and imports fell more than expected in July in a rocky start to the third quarter.
