UK and European stocks nudged higher as investors monitored the latest reading of U.S. inflation data to assess the economic picture in the world’s biggest economy.

U.S. stocks rose as investors eyed a new report on inflation, which showed another decades-high rate of price increases across the recovering economy.

Oil prices steadied after rising in the previous session on expectations that fuel demand will continue to strengthen as the U.S. Federal Reserve is likely to raise interest rates more slowly than expected..

Gold steadied although bullion’s gains were offset by improved appetite for riskier assets since the rise in consumer prices were mostly in line with expectations.

In corporate news, miners were the standout gainers as metals prices rose, with BHP, Antofagasta, Rio, Glencore and Anglo American all higher.

Whitbread rallied as it hailed a resilient third-quarter performance in the UK despite the emergence of the Omicron variant, but said trading in pubs and restaurants remained more challenging.
