SINGAPORE, June 26 (Reuters) - London copper retreated on Wednesday from a five-week high hit in the previous session, as the dollar recovered after comments from the U.S. Federal Reserve chairman curbed dovish enthusiasm.
Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange fell 0.4% to $6,018 a tonne by 0138 GMT, after hitting its highest since May 21 in the previous session.
The dollar edged up from a three-month low as investors dialed back hopes for a strong U.S. rate cut, after Fed Chairman Jerome Powell stressed its independence from U.S. President Donald Trump, who is pushing for steep cuts.
A stronger dollar makes greenback-priced metals more expensive for holders of other currencies.
The most-traded copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange, however, rose 0.8% to 47,290 yuan ($6,867.36) a tonne.
