UK & European stocks opened flat as investors monitor the latest data out of the euro zone and the region’s latest Covid surge.

Shares in Asia-Pacific were mixed, with Japanese stocks leading losses regionally.

Oil prices fell as the U.S.-led coordinated release of stocks from strategic reserves eased concerns over tightness in global supply, while investors took profits from the previous day’s rally ahead of the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.

Gold prices edged up, although strength in the U.S. dollar and bets that the Federal Reserve could raise interest rates sooner kept the metal below the key $1,800 mark.

Chemicals company Johnson Matthey said it had sold its advanced glass technologies business to Fenzi Holdings for £178m as it reported a half-year loss and announced a £200m share buyback.

United Utilities reported a 4% increase in first-half profit as water consumption increased along with economic activity.  Underlying operating profit rose to £332.8m in the six months to the end of September from £318.5m a year earlier as revenue increased 4% to £932.3m. The interim dividend rose to 14.50p from 14.41p.
