UK and European markets opened lower  as investors continue to ponder last week’s central bank policy decisions in Europe and the U.S.

Most Asia-Pacific markets rose, with South Korea’s benchmark Kospi hitting two-year highs as investors digested a fresh batch of economic data.

Gold prices were stuck in a tight range as investor focus turns to U.S. inflation data due later this week, which could shed more light on the timing of the Federal Reserve’s first interest rate cut this year.

Oil prices were on track to gain for a second straight day after settling up more than a dollar on expectations of tighter supply driven by Russian production cuts and attacks on Russian refineries.

In corporate news, engineering group Smiths reaffirmed annual guidance after a rise in half-year earnings and order growth.

The company said operating profit for the six months to January 31 rose 2.7% to £192m. Orders grew 16.5%, although revenue in its general industrial division - its biggest sector - fell 5.5%.
