Sensex Today | Market Close Highlights : UK equities gained on Thursday, buoyed by a fall in government bond yields after the latest economic data showed the British economy was in recession, building the case for the Bank of England to ease its monetary policy.

The exporter-heavy FTSE 100 and the mid-cap FTSE 250 index rose 0.3% each, as of 0846 GMT.

Data showed Britain's economy entered a recession in the second half of 2023 after it shrank by a worse-than-expected 0.3% in the three months to December. It also contracted by 0.1% between July and September.

Asian equities rose on Thursday, powered by chip stocks, with the Nikkei breaching a new 34-year peak, while the dollar took a breather near a three-month high as markets assess when the Federal Reserve is likely to start its easing cycle.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.7%, with the IT index surging nearly 3%. Taiwan stocks soared to a record high, with chipmaker TSMC up nearly 8%.

Japan's Nikkei closed 1.2% higher, climbing as high as 38,188.74 during the session, its firmest since January 1990, inching closer towards its record high last seen in December 1989.

Gold prices on Thursday declined 58 to 61,385 per 10 grams in futures trade as speculators reduced their positions.

On the Multi Commodity Exchange, gold contracts for April delivery traded lower 58 or 0.09 per cent at 61,385 per 10 grams in a business turnover of 13,762 lots.

Analysts attributed the fall in gold prices to weak global cues. Globally, gold was trading 0.04 per cent higher at USD 2,005.10 per ounce in New York.

Oil prices fell on Thursday after a larger-than-expected jump in U.S. crude inventories raised doubts about the strength of demand in the world's largest economy and top oil consumer.

Brent crude futures fell 38 cents, or 0.5%, to $81.22 a barrel at 0837 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures declined 43 cents, or 0.6%, to $76.21 a barrel.
