The Ibex-35 opened Friday with a slight positive trend, following the path of the main markets, after an unsurprising U.S. inflation figure and after the last few weeks of the Spanish corporate results season.

In what could be a catalyst to put an end to the Spanish index's recent calm streak, the US inflation reading lifted the mood of the world's major stock market indexes, with some, such as Wall Street and Japan, reaching record highs.

The previous day, the US personal consumption expenditures index (PCE) reading for January, the Fed's favorite inflation indicator, met analysts' expectations, rising within expectations, with a monthly increase of 0.3% and 2.4% year-on-year, lifting investors' spirits.

This reading has reinforced bets that the Fed's rate-cutting schedule will begin in June -- 66%, according to CME's FedWatch tool -- although the Fed continues to deny any rush to raise rates.

On the macroeconomic front, today will be the turn of inflation in the eurozone, ahead of the European Central Bank meeting next week.

"We do not expect rate moves (from the ECB), placing the first (data-dependent) cut in June, in line with the market which has been in line with our expectations," wrote analysts at Renta 4.

At 0811 GMT on Friday, the selective Spanish stock market index Ibex-35 was up 46.40 points, or 0.46%, to 10,047.70 points, while the FTSE Eurofirst 300 index of large European stocks was up 0.43%.

On a weekly basis, the index was heading for a fall of 0.55%.

In the banking sector, Santander rose 0.18%, BBVA gained 0.54%, Caixabank advanced 0.72%, Sabadell fell 0.04%, Bankinter gained 0.34%, and Unicaja Banco rose 1.69%.

Among the large non-financial stocks, Telefónica gained 0.42%, Inditex advanced 0.27%, Cellnex gained 1.95%, and the oil company Repsol rose 0.27%.

Shares of Spanish pharmaceutical company Grifols soared 17.35%, after falling as much as 35% on Thursday following its profit reduction.

Spain's Acciona was up 1.02%, after announcing a 23% rise in profits, beating analysts' forecasts.

Construction company ACS fell by 4.24%, after announcing a 17% increase in profits on Thursday, thanks to its construction services abroad.
