UK & European markets were higher at the open as investors digested the latest move by the U.S. Federal Reserve and look ahead to more decisions by central banks in Europe.

Stocks in the Asia-Pacific traded mostly higher as investors digested the U.S. Federal Reserve’s smaller rate hike of 25 basis points and Fed Chairman Jerome Powell acknowledged inflation is falling.

Oil prices rose after the U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 25 basis points, sending the dollar lower.

Gold prices extended gains to touch their highest in more than nine months.

In corporate news, oil and gas giant Shell posted a record fourth-quarter profit of $9.8bn driven by higher trading from its liquefied natural gas (LNG) operations.

Annual earnings doubled to $39.87bn, also a record, as the company cashed in on soaring energy prices inflamed by Russia's invasion of Ukraine a year ago.
