UK and European stocks opened lower as investors monitor a slew of central bank decisions and data releases.

Asia-Pacific markets mostly fell after Japan’s May core inflation data came in slightly cooler than expected, jeopardizing the country’s plans to raise interest rates.

Oil priced lower.

Gold prices were poised for a second consecutive weekly gain, driven by safe-haven demand amid tensions in the Middle East and rising bets that the U.S. Federal Reserve might reduce interest rates later this year.

In corporate news, shares in Britvic soared in early trading on Friday, after the soft drinks firm rejected a fresh approach from brewing giant Carlsberg Group.

The FTSE 250 company confirmed it had received an unsolicited proposal from Carlsberg at 1,250p per share, valuing it at around £3.1bn.
