Chile posts October trade deficit of $217 mln

    SANTIAGO, Nov 7 (Reuters) - Chile posted a trade deficit
 of $217 million in October, its third consecutive
negative trade gap this year,  the central bank reported on
Wednesday.  
    Copper exports softened by 7 percent over the same month in
2017 amid U.S.-China trade tensions that have affected the price
of the red metal.
    Chile is the world's top copper producer.
