The most-traded January copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange advanced 1.6% to 59,170 yuan ($9,048.78) a tonne, on course for a weekly gain of 1.6%.

US lawmakers continued negotiations on a potential coronavirus aid bill after months of talks, saying that failure to agree was no longer an option.
