Copper Tuesday



Copper steadied on Tuesday alongside the dollar though some analysts expected prices to retreat further as the market fully takes into account prospects for weak demand growth in top consumer China.  Benchmark copper on the LME was trading 0.2 percent higher at $4,697 a tonne ($2.13/lb), while Shanghai Futures Exchange copper traded down by 1 percent at 35,890 yuan ($5,504) a tonne ($2.50/lb).  A sell off started last week due to a stronger U.S. currency and weak manufacturing data from China.
