SINGAPORE, June 4 (Reuters) - Industrial metals traded in a tight range on Tuesday as investors continued to be worried about demand for metals as well as global growth, amid a lack of progress in the prolonged U.S.-China trade war and weak manufacturing data from the world's top economies.
Weak manufacturing data in China, the United States and the euro zone, as well as U.S. planned tariffs for goods from Mexico and an unresolved trade war between Beijing and Washington have been clouding investors' sentiment in the past weeks.
"Markets do not like uncertainty and unrest and that is precisely what they are being served up at the moment," said Malcolm Freeman of Kingdom Futures in a note.
