UK and European stock markets opened lower as U.S. debt ceiling negotiations continued.

Asia-Pacific markets were mixed as talks between U.S President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy ended without a deal.

Gold prices fell, weighed down by a stronger dollar and hawkish remarks by some Federal Reserve members, while investors kept their eyed peeled on the U.S. debt ceiling saga.

Oil prices continued to climb with investors expecting a tighter market led by a seasonal rise in gasoline demand and supply cuts from OPEC+ producers, though concerns over the risk of a U.S. debt default capped gains.

In corporate news, Upper Crust owner SSP said FY 2023 sales and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation are set to be at the upper end of its expectations, as it hailed a strong first half performance "in a recovering market".

The company had guided to sales of £2.9bn to £3bn and EBITDA of £250m to £280m.
