SINGAPORE, June 4 (Reuters) - Industrial metals on Tuesday traded in tight range amid a lack of progress in the prolonged U.S.-China trade war and weak manufacturing data that sparked concerns of slowing global growth and demand for metals.
Growth in U.S. manufacturing activity slowed in May to its weakest pace in over two years as factory managers raised concerns about a trade war between the United States and China, a national survey showed on Monday.
Manufacturing activity in the euro zone contracted for a fourth month in May and at a faster pace, as the U.S.-China trade war, slumping automotive demand, Brexit and wider geopolitical uncertainty took their toll, a survey showed.
