LME copper slips after European PMI dents confidence SYDNEY: London copper slipped on Tuesday from its highest close in nearly three weeks, easing after three days of gains, with only a weaker-than-expected June European manufacturing survey denting encouraging global growth prospects.

But the euro zone's private sector expansion unexpectedly slowed, even ...
