UK & European stocks were higher after a mixed start to the trading week.
US stocks held near record highs, largely hitting pause in muted early trading amid the release of the week's economic data highlight: May's retail sales numbers.
Oil prices ticked up in early trade on Tuesday, extending gains from the previous session on a stronger demand outlook and investor confidence that OPEC+ producers could pause or reverse plans to raise supplies from the fourth quarter of this year.
Gold prices edged higher as Treasury yields eased, with market participants awaiting U.S. data and comments from Federal Reserve officials for more clarity on the central bank’s roadmap for interest rate cuts.

In corporate news, Premier Inn owner Whitbread rallied as it said it was confident on its full-year outlook despite flat first-quarter sales.

Hotel sales were boosted by a strong performance in Germany, where they rose 15%, offsetting zero growth in the UK.
