UK & European stocks opened mixed amid a global market sell-off, prompted mainly by concerns over inflation and rising interest rates — and the potential for a global recession.

Asia-Pacific markets fell after heavy losses overnight on Wall Street that saw the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite dropping more than 4%.

Oil prices tumbled, extending the previous day’s steep declines as coronavirus lockdowns in top oil importer China, a strong dollar and growing recession risks fed worries about the outlook for global demand.

Gold prices edged higher as a decline in U.S. Treasury yields countered pressure on greenback-priced bullion from sustained strength in the dollar.

In corporate news, precision instrument maker Spectris said it had bought US firm Dytran Instruments for $82m (£66m).

Based in California, Dytran designs and makes accelerometers and sensors for measuring dynamic force, pressure, and vibration for the space, aerospace, industrial and automotive industries.
