Copper futures end lower on Monday

Copper futures ended lower on Monday on account of funds sell off in global markets, though some losses were capped by expectations of firmer demand in world's top consumer China after improving economic data. Reports out on Saturday showed that activity in China's manufacturing sector expanded for a second month in a row in September.

Copper futures for December delivery fell 0.8 percent to settle at $2.192 a pound on the Comex metals division of New York Mercantile Exchange. While, copper on the London Metal Exchange ended down 0.9 percent to $4,819 a metric ton.
