UK & European markets opened higher, extending gains from the previous session.

Stocks in Asia-Pacific traded mixed as investors further digested China’s growth target set in its parliamentary sessions and looked ahead to a week of economic data.

Oil prices opened lower after China set a modest target for economic growth this year of around 5%, lower than market expectations of 5.5% growth in the world’s second largest oil consumer.

Gold prices ticked lower as central banks indicated further interest rate hikes to tame stubbornly high inflation, diminishing bullion’s appeal as a hedge against price increases.

In corporate news, shipping services company Clarkson reported a sharp rise in annual earnings, driven by a strong performance in its broking division.

Pre-tax profit for the 2022 calendar year came in at £100.1m, compared with £69.1m a year earlier. The total dividend was lifted to 93p a share from 84p.
