Asian shares were choppy on Tuesday as weak global manufacturing activity reinforced worries about slowing world growth, while the initial enthusiasm over a Sino-U.S. trade truce gave way to uncertainty over whether the two nations can strike a durable deal.

Precious Metals

Spot gold gained 0.46% to trade at $1,390.49 per ounce on Tuesday.

Nickel’s three-month price on the London Metal Exchange was lower at the close of trading on Monday July 1, failing to sustain recent gains while poor data from China’s manufacturing sector damped buying sentiment.
