UK and European markets closed higher as investors remained attuned to the coronavirus pandemic.

U.S. markets rose following a historic rally in the previous session as U.S. senators and Trump administration officials reached agreement on a $2 trillion stimulus package.

The dollar rebounded from earlier losses against a basket of currencies as the coronavirus outbreak accelerated across the United States.

Oil prices were lower as the coronavirus pandemic sharply dented U.S. fuel demand in the last week, with traders bracing for further declines.

Gold prices were volatile as markets responded to a $2 trillion U.S. government stimulus package to soften the economic damage of the coronavirus outbreak.

In corporate news, shares of Polymetal jumped to near their 52-week highs, tracking a similar advance for gold.

Among the insurers making the most headway meanwhile were Phoenix Group, RSA Insurance and Legal & General.

JD Sports was also higher after the retailer reassured investors regarding its liquidity position.
