CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said: “The gains in the US were helped by reports that US politicians passed a bill in the House of Representatives aimed at cutting US company rates from 35% to 20%. As is normal the optics are more important than the actual reality, with the prospect of getting the bill into law by way of the Senate still slim in the short term.”

He pointed out that European markets snapped their five day losing streak on Thursday, as some cautious buyers returned to the fray after the worst run of daily losses so far this year.
