UK & European stocks closed lower as investors look ahead to the Federal Reserve’s next meeting and U.S. inflation data.

Wall Street stocks were mixed early on Tuesday as market participants prepared for the outcome of the Federal Reserve's two-day policy meeting.

Gold prices were flat with investors awaiting key U.S. inflation data and the outcome of the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting for details of the central bank’s plans to cut interest rates against its inflation target.

Oil prices were largely steady as investors waited for U.S. and China inflation data and the outcome of the Federal Reserve's policy meeting to see how changing prices could hit demand.

In corporate news, Hikma Pharmaceuticals was the top gainer after Citi lifted its price target on the shares to 2,845p from 2,770p as it said IQVIA April data highlighted "healthy trends" for injectables and US Generics.

"The strategy at US Generics (30/20% of sales/EBIT) longer-term remains reducing volatility and delivering a sustainable EBIT of $100-120m, as a result of efforts to increase contract manufacturing activities and further broadening the Specialty portfolio," it said.
