U.K. and European stocks retreated as investors digested earnings from big names in the region, including Airbus, Barclays and Daimler. 


U.S. Stocks fell after jobless claims data disappointed. 

Oil traded lower even as a cold snap sweeping Texas and surrounding regions shut at least a fifth of U.S. refining output and a million barrels of crude production. 

Gold edged up as the U.S. dollar and Treasury yields eased. 

In corporate news, Barclays was in the red even after it reinstated its dividend and said it would buy back up to £700m worth of shares as the bank reported annual profit ahead of forecasts. 

Imperial Brands and GlaxoSmithKline are ex-dividend today.
