SINGAPORE, July 30 (Reuters) - Industrial metals traded in tight ranges on Tuesday as investors exercised caution ahead of planned U.S.-China trade talks and a two-day U.S. Federal Reserve meeting starting later today.
The U.S. Fed is widely expected to lower interest rates by 25 basis points, cutting for the first time in a decade and potentially weakening the U.S. dollar, making greenback-priced metals cheaper for holders of other currencies.
Meanwhile, U.S. and Chinese officials are due to meet on Tuesday in Shanghai for talks on a year-long trade dispute that has weighed on global economic growth and demand for industrial metals.
Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange was almost flat at $6,019.50 a tonne by 0132 GMT, while aluminum edged up 0.2%, nickel eased 0.1%, zinc advanced 0.4% and lead increased 0.3%.
The most-traded copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange rose 0.9% to 47,320 yuan ($6,865.23) a tonne, aluminum edged up 0.3%, nickel and zinc advanced 1.7% each while lead increased 0.5%.
* RARE EARTH: Australian rare earth producer Lynas Corp Ltd said on Monday it is on track to have its Malaysian operating license renewed, as it flagged soft demand from China amid a slip in quarterly sales revenue.
* TRADE TALKS: Expectations for progress at the U.S.-China trade meeting are low, so officials and businesses are hoping Washington and Beijing can at least detail commitments for "goodwill" gestures and clear the path for future negotiations.
