UK & European stocks rose at the open after the S&P 500 closed above the 5,000 level for the first time on Friday.

Asia markets were mixed to start a holiday-shortened week for most markets, while China remains shut for the week.

Gold prices steadied in a tight range in holiday-thinned trading, as investors awaited remarks from a slew of U.S. Federal Reserve officials in a data-packed week.

Oil prices fell in early Asian trade after Israel said it had “concluded” a series of strikes in southern Gaza, slightly easing concerns about supply from the Middle East.

In corporate news, Tritax Big Box said it had agreed terms on a possible bid for UK Commercial Property REIT in an all-share deal worth £924m.

The company said it had offered 0.444 new Tritax shares for every UKCP share, leaving it with 76.7% of the merged group and UKCM shareholders with the remainder.

It also represents a 10.8% premium to UKCP’s closing share price of 64.2 pence per share on February 9.
