UK and European stocks started the new trading week mixed.

The dollar clung to gains as softening U.S. economic data and rising global coronavirus cases kept investors cautious.

Oil prices fell, ending a rally that started at end-October on production cuts and strong Chinese demand.

Gold prices dropped as a stronger U.S. dollar made bullion expensive for other currency holders, despite expectations of a large Covid-19 relief package in the United States.

In corporate news, the top flight index was weighed down slightly by interest rate sensitive and defensive stocks such as BT Group, United Utilities and Hikma Pharmaceuticals.
