UK stocks closed slightly higher as investors assess recovery hopes and economic data.

The dollar fell as market participants waited for the Federal Reserve’s meeting minutes due later in the session to help determine the future path for the dollar.

Oil prices eased despite prospects for stronger global economic growth as talks to revive a nuclear deal with Iran opens the possibility of an easing of sanctions on its oil exports.

Gold prices fell as robust economic data from the United States lifted expectations of a rapid recovery and dampened bullion’s appeal.

In corporate news, Just Eat was the top gainer, with traders suggesting that a strike at rival Deliveroo could be boosting the shares. The union for Deliveroo said earlier that workers are striking in a dispute over pay and conditions.
