UK and European stocks closed higher amid a raft of data releases from the region.

The dollar fell but the outlook remained upbeat in the wake of solid U.S. economic data and accelerated vaccine rollouts.

Crude prices rose, recouping some of the previous session’s losses on expectations that a meeting of OPEC and its allies later on Thursday would yield output constraint.

Gold rose on a retreat in the dollar and U.S. bond yields, while poor jobless data raised prospects for a slower economic recovery and more stimulus.

In corporate news, Phoenix Group and Smith & Nephew fell as they traded without entitlement to the dividend.
