UK and European stocks closed mostly lower amid volatile sentiment in global markets.

U.S. stocks gained with investors eyeing elevated commodity prices and other signs of inflation heading into corporate earnings season.

Oil rose towards $84 a barrel, supported by a rebound in global demand that is contributing to energy shortages in big economies such as China.

Gold rose as rising inflationary fears weighed on investors’ appetite for risk.

In corporate news, GlaxoSmithKline rallied following a report that the pharmaceuticals giant’s consumer unit was drawing interest from private equity firms in what could lead to the biggest buyout of all time.

Diversified Energy tumbled after it was reported that some of its ageing gas wells were leaking methane.
