U.K. and European markets closed cautiously higher as investors monitored rising bond yields, corporate earnings, and a batch of key economic data out of the eurozone.


U.S. stocks were higher as the major indexes looked to recuperate some recent declines. 

Oil was relatively flat as Texas energy firms prepared to restart oil and gas fields shuttered by freezing weather. 

Gold traded higher. 

In corporate news, NatWest closed higher after the bank said it was pulling out of the Republic of Ireland, reported a smaller-than-expected annual loss and restored its dividend. 

Real estate investment trust Segro was also higher after it posted a 10.8% jump in adjusted full-year pre-tax profit.
