UK and European stocks were mixed as investors monitor hopes for economic recovery.

The dollar dropped as investors prepared for U.S. Treasury Secretary nominee Janet Yellen to talk up the need for major fiscal stimulus and commit to a market-determined exchange rate.

Oil prices climbed on optimism that government stimulus will eventually lift global economic growth and oil demand.

Gold edged up as the dollar weakened ahead of U.S. Treasury Secretary nominee Janet Yellen’s speech later in the day, with prospects for more fiscal stimulus buoying bullion’s appeal as an inflation hedge.

In corporate news, HSBC was among the top risers after chairman Mark Tucker said at the Asian Financial Forum on Monday that the bank hopes to resume paying dividends as soon as possible.

Going the other way, Entain shares tumbled after MGM Resorts International said it won’t go ahead with an offer for the Ladbrokes owner, after its initial approach was rejected.
