SHANGHAI, May 14 (SMM) --Spain and Portugal announced to take actions to cut deficit budget. Although those moves will help ease concerns over the spread of debt issues in the Europe, investors worried economic recovery in the Europe would be negatively affected. In this context, the US dollar strengthened, and the US equities moved lower. LME copper market, supported by cash, moved higher following rising LME zinc prices, closing at USD 7,140/mt, up USD 125/mt, and with positions up 3,556 lots.
