UK & European stocks advanced as global markets look to regain some ground after a bruising week, with investors assessing the outlook for inflation and interest rates.

Shares in Asia-Pacific edged higher morning trade, continuing a rollercoaster week as investors assess the inflation and the global economic outlook.

Oil prices extended gains but were headed for their first weekly loss in three weeks as worries about inflation and China’s COVID lockdowns slowing global growth offset concerns about dwindling fuel supplies from Russia.

Gold prices held ground near a three-month low on Friday as the strongest dollar in two decades continued to sap demand for greenback-priced bullion, setting up what could be the metal’s fourth consecutive weekly fall.

In corporate news, company software provider Sage Group reported flat interim profits and revenue as organic growth in all regions was offset by disposals and foreign exchange headwinds.

The company said pre-tax profit for the six months to March 31 fell 1% to £189m and revenue slipped to £934m from £937m.
