UK and European markets moved lower Friday as investors digest the latest slew of corporate earnings and economic data.

U.S. stocks rose after the U.S. government said December’s inflation reading was even lower than first reported.

Oil prices were mixed on Friday, on track for weekly gains, with tensions persisting in the Middle East after Israel rejected a ceasefire offer from Hamas.

Gold slipped on Friday and was heading for a weekly fall, pressured by elevated Treasury yields, while investors awaited next week’s U.S. inflation data for more clues on the timing of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate cuts.

In corporate news, Barclays agreed to buy the majority of Tesco’s banking business in a deal worth £600 million ($756 million).

Barclays will take over Tesco Bank’s credit cards, loans and savings accounts as the U.K. supermarket chain retreats from its move into financial services.
