UK and European markets fell moderately as investors digested more comments from U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. 

U.S. stocks opened the trading session higher following labour market data that was weaker than expected and ahead of Friday morning's key February jobs report.

Oil steadied after a two-day decline as strike-disrupted fuel supply in France, a drop in U.S. crude inventories and a weaker dollar offset fears over the economic impact of rising interest rates.

Gold priced higher.

In corporate news, packaging company DS Smith said on Thursday that third-quarter trading was in line with management expectations, but cautioned that customers had been de-stocking.

In an update for the period since 1 November, the company said the positive trends in profitability seen in the first half have continued into the second.
