LONDON, November 27 – European stock markets were mixed in opening trades today, which was unconvincing for the last day of trading of the week.
In initial trading, the London benchmark FTSE 100 of large blue chip companies fell almost 0.9% to 6,307.55 points.
In the euro zone, the DAX 30 of Frankfurt at 13,292.10 points and the CAC 40 of Paris at 5,566.62 were both stable.
Asian markets, however, maintained their bullish momentum today, starting the weekend on a strong note as investors continue to rejoice at the prospect of coronavirus vaccine rollouts in the coming weeks.
As US markets were closed for the Thanksgiving holiday yesterday, Asian stocks were moderate in early trading, but found their “mojo” as the day progressed. – AFP
