Hopeful manufacturing news pushes up copper

Hopeful signs about the U.S. manufacturing sector are sending copper and energy prices higher.
Copper for May delivery is up 0.65 cent to $3.84 per pound after positive reports from China's purchasing managers and the Institute for Supply Management in the U.S. Oil prices are also up in both New York and London.
Gold is down slightly, losing $1.80 to $1,662.40 per ounce.
Three key agricultural commodities _ wheat, corn and soybeans _ all fell. The most notable change was in wheat, which lost nearly 2 percent to fall to $6.43 per bushel.
