LME copper prices fail to hold $7,600 in officials as market pines for news

London Metal Exchange copper prices failed to hold above $7,600 per tonne in official trading on Tuesday July 31 as the lack of news from EU and US policymakers left markets nervous.

Three-month copper settled at $7,585.50/86 per tonne, up from $7,525/30 per tonne a day earlier but below its intraday high of $7,622 per tonne.
