U.K. and European stocks opened lower as investors digest the latest economic forecasts from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). 


Stocks in Asia Pacific slipped after the International Monetary Fund slashed its economic forecasts. 

Oil prices slipped weighed down by record high U.S. crude inventories and worries that a rapid resurgence in Covid-19 cases could choke a revival in fuel demand. 

Gold traded slightly higher as a selloff in equity markets driven by a surge in coronavirus cases prompted demand for the safe haven metal. 

In corporate news, Auto Trader scrapped its final dividend as it said cross platform visits had risen 28% year on year in the first three weeks of June as coronavirus lockdowns eased. 

BAE Systems said first-half profit would fall by about 15% because of Covid-19 disruption but that demand for its services was high and it expects stronger trading in the second half.
