UK and European stock markets closed higher as investors in the region assessed the European Central Bank’s decision to hike interest rates once again.

The dollar index hit its highest level in six months as economic data was mostly stronger than anticipated and the European Central Bank (ECB) signalled it was finished with its rate hike cycle.

Oil rebounded as expectations of a tighter supply outlook for the rest of 2023 overshadowed concerns over weaker economic growth and rising U.S. inventories.

Gold prices held near a three-week low after higher-than-expected U.S. producer prices data and retail sales numbers raised worries that U.S. interest rates are likely to stay higher for longer.

Deliveroo shares shot higher on Thursday following a report that activist investor Sachem Head Capital Management has taken a stake in the food delivery firm.

Bloomberg cited people familiar with the matter as saying that Sachem Head sees Deliveroo as undervalued and that it could eventually become a takeover target, but isn’t yet actively pushing for changes.

It was understood that Deliveroo is planning defence strategies as it could become vulnerable to takeovers when a dual-class share structure expires in April next year.
