UK and European markets were lower, with investors rattled by fears of a fourth coronavirus wave.

U.S. stocks were mixed, as growing concerns over nationwide COVID-19 lockdowns in Europe raised fears about new restrictions beyond the continent.

Oil prices dropped below $79 a barrel as a fresh surge in COVID-19 cases in Europe threatened to slow the economic recovery while investors also weighed a potential release of crude reserves by major economies to cool energy prices.

Gold edged higher as rising inflation buoyed its safe-haven appeal.

In corporate news, travel and leisure shares were under the cosh on news that Austria will impose a national lockdown from next week with engine maker Rolls-Royce, British Airways owner IAG, GKN owner Melrose and caterer Compass all lower.
