UK and European markets opened higher, bouncing back from lacklustre momentum earlier this week.

Japan stocks fell the most among Asian markets, while Australian stocks hit a record high, helped by a boost from mining shares.

Gold prices steadied as investors digested comments from Federal Reserve Governor Christopher Waller on interest rate cuts and looked forward to more U.S. economic data for policy clues.

Global oil prices edged up, recovering from two consecutive sessions of decline, as investors reassessed the latest U.S. crude oil and gasoline inventories data and returned to buying mode.

In corporate news, JD Sports Fashion said it expected full-year profits to be within guidance of £915-935m and said the current year would be "challenging" due to less product innovation and more discounting, but forecast this to moderate with the Paris Olympics and European football finals in the summer.
