WOODFORD: The suspension of money manager Neil Woodford's Equity Income fund until December remains in place, the fund's authorised corporate director said on Monday at its monthly review of the lock-up. GOLD: Gold prices were steady on Tuesday, having risen to a more than two-week peak in the previous session on global slowdown fears and tensions in the Middle East, while an improved Sino-U.S. trade tone weighed on the yellow metal. OIL: Oil prices eased on Tuesday as weak manufacturing data from Europe and Japan focused market attention on the gloomy outlook for demand and away from uncertainty around supply disruptions in Saudi Arabia.
