FTSE 100, FTSE 250 down 0.2%
* Miners slip as copper prices ease
* Micro Focus down on lower HY revenue
* Ocado gains after affirming forecast
July 9 (Reuters) - London's FTSE 100 dipped on Tuesday as mining stocks fell amid easing copper prices and software firm Micro Focus dropped after its half-year results, but losses were limited by gains in online grocer Ocado, which reaffirmed its annual forecast.
The main index and the mid-cap FTSE 250 edged 0.2% lower by 0715 GMT, with global markets continuing to scale back bets of a hefty rate cut by the U.S. central bank.
Miners were among the biggest drags on the blue-chip index as copper prices continued their recent slide on worries over waning demand from top consumer China.
Ocado added 3.7% after the company backed its annual forecast, even though its first-half core earnings nearly halved, partly due to the impact of a fire at its flagship robotic warehouse in February.
Micro Focus gave up 2.9% after posting lower half-year revenue. (Reporting by Shashwat Awasthi and Muvija M in Bengaluru; Editing by Arun Koyyur)
