Copper futures end lower on demand concerns

Copper futures ended lower on Tuesday as a gloomy global economic growth outlook sapped metal demand. An inversion of the US yield curve, which is widely viewed as an indicator of an economic recession, stoked fears that the world's biggest economy was headed for contraction. Copper prices declined further ahead of a new round of trade talks between world's two largest economies -- the United States and China this week.

Copper futures for May delivery lost almost 0.1 percent to settle at $2.854 a pound on the Comex metals division of New York Mercantile Exchange. Copper on the London Metal Exchange closed down 0.2 percent at $6,330 a tonne.
