UK & European stock markets closed higher, recovering from earlier losses.

U.S. stocks rose at the open while bond yields retreated slightly from their recent march.

Oil prices edged higher.

Gold prices climbed to their highest in nearly two weeks and are on track for their biggest weekly rise since mid-January, on the back of a softer dollar as investors gauged the U.S. central bank’s policy path.

In corporate news, Vistry has reportedly told hundreds of employees they may lose their jobs as the housebuilder cuts costs in the midst of a housing slump.

It was understood the firm has begun redundancy consultations with affected employees in the roughly 5,000-strong workforce.

News of the potential job cuts comes after both Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey warned earlier this week of falling sales this year.
