London metal prices rise on weaker dollar, Brexit boost

London base metal prices rose across the board in early Asian trade on Tuesday, supported by a weaker dollar and tracking stock markets higher after the European Commission agreed to changes in a Brexit deal.

A softer greenback makes dollar-denominated metals cheaper for holders of other currencies and can boost prices.

COPPER: Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange had climbed 0.4 percent to $6,434.50 a tonne by 0216 GMT, extending a 0.2-percent gain from the previous session. The most-traded May copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange added 0.5 percent to 49,250 yuan ($7,334.98) a tonne.

COPPER: Production at Chinese miner MMG Ltd’s Las Bambas copper deposit in Peru could fall “in the near-term” due to a month-long road blockade by a community that was relocated to build the mine, the company said.
