UK & European markets opened positive following broadly higher trade in Europe on Monday, as stocks recovered from a tough week last week.

Shares in the Asia-Pacific rose as Japan’s inflation accelerated and China kept its loan prime rate on hold.

Oil prices were little changed on concerns that interest rate hikes in the United States to tame inflation will curb economic growth and fuel demand in the world’s biggest crude consumer.

Gold prices traded in a tight range as investors maintained a cautious stance ahead of this week’s policy meeting by the Federal Reserve.

In corporate news, B&Q owner Kingfisher reported a fall in first-half profits against a tough comparator last year when DIY boomed during pandemic lockdowns.

The company said pre-tax profits for the six months to July 31 fell by a third to £474m, while like-for-like sales were down 4.1% to £6.8bn.
