UK and European stock markets closed higher after a choppy session during which the European Central Bank said it would hike interest rates by 50 basis points despite recent volatility in the region’s banks.

U.S. stocks were rallying in early afternoon trade as reports swirled troubled bank First Republic (FRC) is in talks with multiple larger banks on a takeover, which could potentially forestall what investors feared would be the fourth U.S. bank to fail in less than two weeks.

Oil prices extended losses, trading near 15-month lows, after the European Central Bank (ECB) raised interest rates and as fears of a global banking crisis weighed on the demand outlook.

Gold gained, bouncing towards last session’s month-and-a-half peak as concerns about the banking crisis continue after the European Central Bank hiked interest rates despite the ongoing financial stability risks.

In corporate news, Ceres Power announced on Wednesday that it will be collaborating with Linde Engineering and Robert Bosch to validate the performance, cost, and operational functionality of its SOEC technology.

The AIM-traded firm said the collaboration would involve preparing a two-year demonstration of a one-megawatt SOEC system, which was set to begin in 2024 and would be located at a Bosch site in Stuttgart, Germany.
