UK & European stocks fell sharply at the open as global markets digest the latest inflation reading out of the United States..

Shares in Asia-Pacific were lower as tech stocks sold off following overnight losses on Wall Street.

Oil prices dropped in a volatile week as economic concerns and recession fears dogged global financial markets, outweighing supply concerns and geopolitical tensions in Europe.

Gold gained after U.S. consumer price data suggested inflation might have peaked in April, allaying some concerns of more aggressive Fed rate hikes.

In corporate news, retailer JD Sports said that like-for-like sales were more than 5% higher year-on-year, driven by both the "strength and breadth" of its brand relationships and category offerings.

The FTSE 100 firm believes that headline pre-tax profits for the year ending 28 January 2023 will at least be equal to that for the year ended 29 January 2022, which it expects to be approximately £940.0m.
