UK and European markets opened mixed as investors attempt to shake off negative sentiment from last week and look ahead to the latest interest rate decision from the Bank of England.

Asia-Pacific markets were mostly lower as the region assesses key economic data out from China.

Oil prices slipped in Asian trading after a survey on Friday showed weaker U.S. consumer demand and as May crude production rose in China, the world’s biggest crude importer.

Gold prices eased as investors awaited more U.S. economic data, while reports from last week showed that inflation was stabilizing and lifted hopes for the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates later this year.

In corporate news, B&Q owner Kingfisher said it had appointed British Land chief financial officer Bhavesh Mistry to the same role at the home improvement company.

Mistry will succeed current CFO Bernard Bot, who has decided to retire to further pursue his non-executive career. He has been with British Land since 2021 and was Deputy CFO of Tesco from 2018 to 2021.
