Base metals on MCX got support as Indian rupee weakened over 1.1%, its steepest fall in 21-month against the US dollar as concern over US President Donald Trump spurred.

Weakness can seen as China's growth is set for its weakest patch since the global financial crisis as authorities pull back on stimulus. Also China's banking regulator has tightened disclosure rules on lenders' wealth management products. Separately, the China Banking Regulatory Commission unveiled plans to publish a flurry of regulations later this year to control financial risks.

A Chinese metals industry body said on Wednesday it was concerned about the fairness of a U.S. probe into aluminium imports, following earlier concerns raised by the country's Commerce Ministry. "Our association is highly concerned about this, and worried about the fairness of the probe and its results," China's Non Ferrous Metals Industry Association said in a statement.

The U.S. Commerce Department launched an investigation last month into whether aluminium imports from China and elsewhere were compromising U.S. national security. The industry body said it was worried the U.S. action could damage free trade and the development of the global aluminium industry.

China's Commerce Ministry said last month it was concerned by the probe and hoped to resolve the dispute through talks.
