U.K. and European stocks opened in mixed territory as investors digest global market moves. 


Asia-Pacific markets mostly traded higher but shares on the Chinese mainland and in Hong Kong lost some ground. 

Oil prices edged higher on the prospects for stronger global economic growth amid increased Covid-19 vaccinations and a report that crude inventories in the United States, the world’s biggest fuel consumer, fell.

In corporate news, Croda International said it had bought French fine fragrance business Parfex for €45m. 

Budget airline Ryanair narrowed its full-year loss expectations said traffic for FY22 was set to be towards the lower end of its guidance as it continues to take a hit from Covid restrictions.
