SINGAPORE, May 14 (Reuters) - Copper prices rose on Tuesday on bargain buying with the metal having tumbled to a 15-month low in the previous session on escalated trade tensions between Beijing and Washington.
China said on Monday it would impose higher tariffs on most U.S. imports on a revised $60 billion target list, hitting back at a U.S. tariff increase on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, just days after markets were expecting a trade deal.
Benchmark copper was up 0.7% at $6,054.50 a tonne, as of 0355 GMT, rebounding from a 15-month low hit in the previous session.
Lead also rebounded from a 33-month low hit on Monday, rising 0.6% to $1,796 a tonne.
"The selloff has been a little overdone so I suspect there's a bit of opportunistic buying. Metals' upside has been constrained due to the cloud surrounding the macro backdrop," said Daniel Hynes, a senior commodity strategist, ANZ.
"There's a good chance we could see some of the losses we saw over the past few days recovered, but I think the upside is limited for the moment until there is some sort of clarity around the trade agreement between the U.S. and China," Hynes said.
* COPPER STOCKS: Copper inventories in warehouses approved by the London Metal Exchange (LME) <MCUSTX-TOTAL> on Friday hit 203,750 tonnes, its lowest since April 25, latest data showed.
* COPPER DEFICIT: The copper market should see a deficit of 189,000 tonnes this year, widening to 250,000 tonnes in 2020, the International Copper Study Group said on Monday.
* PRICES: Three-month aluminium on the LME eased 0.1%, nickel was almost flat and zinc increased 0.7%.
* SHANGHAI: All base metals in Shanghai fell, with the most-active copper contract losing 0.3% to 47,590 yuan ($6,927.12) a tonne.
