U.K. and European stocks closed mixed after a choppy day’s trade, with tech stocks following their global counterparts lower on fears over rising bond yields. 


U.S. stocks were lower as technology stocks extended their declines. 

Oil prices were steady on signs that global coronavirus restrictions were being eased. 

Gold eased as the U.S. dollar firmed and as investors turned cautious ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s testimony to Congress later in the day. 

In equity markets, HSBC closed lower as it reported a 34% slump in annual profits, but resumed dividend payments as it said it would refocus operations on China. 

Online supermarket Ocado and Just Eat, both of which have benefitted from lockdowns and restrictions, lost ground.
