UK & European markets climbed as traders look for a partial recovery from Thursday’s selloff, with the outlook for monetary policy still firmly in focus.

Asia-Pacific traded higher as investors digested Japan’s inflation data. The nationwide core consumer price index rose 4% in December on an annualized basis, the fastest pace since 1981.

Oil prices rose on optimism that the U.S. Federal Reserve will ends its tightening cycle, buoying the economy and boosting fuel demand.

Gold prices held steady but were on track for a fifth consecutive weekly gain, as a weaker dollar and hopes of slower U.S. interest rate hikes boosted the safe-haven bullion’s appeal.

In corporate news, power generator SSE upgraded annual earnings expectations as higher gas prices and better storage offset lower-than-expected renewables output.

The company lifted adjusted earnings per share to more than 150 pence from previous guidance of at least 120 pence.
