Reuters reported that London copper prices bounced back on Tuesday, buoyed by concerns over possible disruptions to supply from the world’s biggest copper mine. Negotiations between workers and management at Chile’s Escondida mine are deadlocked without signs of progress towards an agreement a little more than a week before the current labour contract expires.

The rise in copper prices was limited by slowing growth in top consumer China. China will adopt a more vigorous fiscal policy to help tackle external uncertainties without resorting to strong policy stimulus. Slowing economic growth has sparked a heated debate among government researchers on whether fiscal policy should play a bigger role in softening the impact of a trade war with the United States.

Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange had risen 0.6 percent to $6,167 a tonne by 0328 GMT, with the most-traded copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange adding 1 percent to 49,350 yuan ($7,247.12) a tonne.
