UK & European markets started the new trading week on a positive note with investors gauging the economic outlook.

Shares were higher in Asia, but most markets were closed for the Lunar New Year holiday, with markets in Shanghai shut for the whole week.

Oil prices drifted lower in early trade, thinned by the Lunar New Year holiday in east Asia, but held on to most of last week’s gains on the prospect of an economic recovery in top oil importer China this year.

Gold prices rose, as a softer dollar and prospects of slower interest rate hikes by the U.S. Federal Reserve boosted bullion’s appeal.

In corporate news, Infrastructure group Balfour Beatty said it had been awarded a £1.2bn contract by Britain’s National Highways to deliver a package of works for the proposed Lower Thames Crossing.

The company on Monday said it would be responsible for the design and delivery of more than 10 miles of new highway as part of the project to build a new tunnel under the River Thames aimed at easing traffic congestion in the south of England.
