UK & European markets nudged higher with investors awaiting the latest flash purchasing managers’ index data from the euro zone in January.

Markets in the Asia-Pacific traded higher as Lunar New Year holidays were observed in most of the region.

Crude oil prices rose slightly in a market focused on prospects of demand recovery from top importer China and on the global economic outlook ahead of company earnings.

Gold prices edged up as the dollar weakened.

In corporate news, Primark owner Associated British Foods posted a 20% rise in sales during the Christmas period as consumers continued to hunt for bargains amid the cost-of-living crisis.
