UK and European stocks opened mixed as market momentum wanes.

Asia-Pacific markets were mixed as investors assessed economic data from China and Australia, while the Japanese yen fell to 151.97 — its weakest level in 34 years against the greenback.

Gold prices edged lower due to an uptick in the dollar, although bullion traded in a narrow range as investors stayed on the side-lines awaiting more cues on the U.S. Federal Reserve policy.

Oil prices fell for a second day after a report that crude stockpiles in the U.S., the world’s biggest oil user, surged and on signs major producers are unlikely to change their output policy at a technical meeting next week.

In corporate news, Travis Perkins said its chief executive Nick Roberts was stepping down from his position and the company's board after serving for five years.

It said the board and Nick had mutually agreed that it was the appropriate time to search for a new leader to guide the business forward.

Roberts will continue in his role until a suitable successor is found, with the Nominations Committee currently engaged in a thorough search process for his replacement, it said.
