UK & European markets opened modestly higher but continue on course for a bruising week as global stocks reacted to policy tightening from major central banks.

Shares in Asia-Pacific struggled for direction following sharp declines on Wall Street as investors weighed the possibility of aggressive monetary policy tightening leading to a recession.

Oil prices recovered from a steep drop in the previous session, supported by tight oil supply and peak summer consumption.

Gold fell as a higher dollar and rising U.S. Treasury yields weighed on demand for greenback-priced bullion.

In corporate news, supermarket chain Tesco said it was seeing early indications of changing customer behaviour as a result of the cost-of-living crisis and inflationary environment as it reported a fall in first quarter sales.

The company said UK like-for-like sales for the three months to May 28 fell 1.5% to £9.8bn. On a group basis sales were up 2%, boosted by a strong performance at its Booker division, where revenue rose 19.4% to £2bn.
