Hotel Chocolat is to make fewer Easter eggs this year as it opts for caution amid a squeeze on shoppers' budgets.

The chocolate retailer said it had decided not to produce as much stock for Easter as part of its plans to "play cautious".

Hotel Chocolat plans to sell out of products including Easter eggs and themed chocolates in the run-up to the bank holiday weekend, rather than having excess stock that it would typically discount after Easter.

UK and European markets retreated, tracking weaker global sentiment as investors gauge the economic outlook, a topic high on the agenda at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.

U.S. stocks moved lower as investors dissected the latest batch of economic data and braced for more Fedspeak and the start of earnings season from corporate tech giants.

Oil futures rose slightly, recouping losses from earlier in the session as an expected rise in Chinese demand and further restrictions on Russian exports suggested market supply will remain tight.

Gold priced higher.
