METALS-London copper recovers from 1-month low

MELBOURNE, Oct 2 (Reuters) - London copper recovered from a near one-month low touched during the previous session, as the dollar weakened on poor U.S. manufacturing data.

FUNDAMENTALS

* COPPER: London Metal Exchange copper rose by 0.5% to $5714 a tonne by 0352 GMT, having fallen to its weakest since Sept. 3 on Tuesday when prices plumbed to $5,588 a tonne.

* SHFE CLOSED: The Shanghai Futures Exchange was closed for a second day and will reopen on Tuesday October 8.

* U.S. FACTORIES: U.S. manufacturing activity tumbled to a more than 10-year low in September as lingering trade tensions weighed on exports, further heightening financial market fears of a sharp slowdown in economic growth in the third quarter.

* DOLLAR: Worries about a slowing U.S. economy and the possibility of further interest rate cuts in the wake of weak U.S. manufacturing data kept the dollar pinned down on Wednesday, as investors sought safety elsewhere.
