UK and European stocks turned positive as concerns around global growth and inflation were offset by a strong start to earnings season.

U.S. stocks traded mixed as investors digested new earnings data and a key inflation report, which showed a faster-than-expected rise in inflation across a broad range of goods.

Oil prices dropped after a mixed finish in the previous session, amid worries that soaring coal and natural gas prices in China, India and Europe will stoke inflation and slow global growth, reducing oil demand.

Gold rose, boosted by concerns of an economic hit from soaring energy prices and a retreat in the dollar, as investors braced for U.S. inflation data.

In corporate news, Barratt was the standout performer on index after it said strong demand for its homes had continued into the current fiscal year despite a reduction in government incentives, adding it was on track to deliver full-year medium targets.

Peers Taylor WimpeyPersimmon and Berkeley also pushed higher.
