UK and European markets edged higher, looking to eke out a positive week as investors continue to watch economic data, the Covid-19 situation and corporate earnings.

Hong Kong shares fell, extending losses from the previous session as some of China’s biggest tech names remained under pressure.

Oil prices steadied as investors paused for breath following a day of wild swings prompted by the prospect of coordinated action by the world’s major economies to release official crude reserves from stocks.

Gold prices inched higher but were set for their first decline in three weeks as rising inflation fuelled bets of quicker interest rate hikes and dented bullion’s appeal.

In corporate news, UK commercial landlord Great Portland Estates swung to a half-year profit as Covid lockdowns were eased and shoppers cautiously returned to London’s West End retail precinct.

The company reported a pre-tax profit of £62.3m for the six months to September from a loss of £155.2m a year earlier.
