Copper futures end lower on trade talk concerns

Copper futures ended lower on Monday due to continued concerns about US-China trade talks and global growth. China expressed anger on Monday at a US Navy mission through the disputed South China Sea after US President Donald Trump said last week that he did not plan to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping before a March 1 deadline for a trade deal.

Copper futures for March delivery fell 0.7 percent to settle at $2.79 a pound on the Comex metals division of New York Mercantile Exchange. Copper on the London Metal Exchange ended down 1 percent at $6,150 a tonne.
