UK and European stocks opened slightly higher after European stocks closed at a record high during the previous session.

Asia-Pacific stocks were mixed as investors looked at economic data from China and digested Japan’s household spending numbers, with markets also assessing the European Central Bank’s rate cut.

Gold prices held steady and were on track for their first weekly gain in three as traders stepped up bets that the U.S. Federal Reserve will start cutting rates soon, sending the dollar and Treasury yields lower.

Oil prices rose on Friday, continuing to climb after OPEC+ members Saudi Arabia and Russia indicated readiness to pause or reverse output agreements and as an interest rate cut in Europe raised the prospect of a similar U.S. move.

In corporate news, Drinks maker C&C Group said chief executive Patrick McMahon is stepping down after accounting errors in the last three years when he was chief finance director.

The company, which makes brands such as Magners cider and Tennents beer, said corrections to the accounts would result in an aggregate underlying operating profit adjustment charge of €5m.

Chair of the board Ralph Findlay has been appointed group CEO with immediate effect “to ensure continuity of executive leadership” and is expected to remain in post as for between 12 and 18 months.
