TODAY’s FACTORS AND EVENTS
Stocks ended the session with moderately strong gains despite another move higher for the single currency aided by dovish Fedspeak.
Against that backdrop, Greece was in the spotlight at the end of the week even as the angst around the political situation in the US over the past few days appeared to have calmed down, at least for the moment.
At the closing bell, the benchmark Stoxx 600 was up by 0.60% to 391.51, alongside gains of 0.39% for Germany’s Dax which was at 12,638.69 and a rise of 1.26% for the FTSE Mibtel to 21,567.52.
“Equity indices are holding their rebound gains, albeit treading water since the European open, as investors weigh up recent market moves. Whilst not electing to take on more risk before the weekend, nor are they taking any more off the table. A positive statement in many ways, given the political headwinds in play,” said Mike van Dulken, Head of Research at Accendo Markets.
