European stocks rebound at open


The region’s indices had ended lower on Thursday.

LONDON (AFP) – Europe s main stock markets rebounded at the start of trading on Friday, with London s benchmark FTSE 100 index up 0.22 percent to 6,814.35 points.

Frankfurt s DAX 30 gained 0.11 percent to 9,706.59 points and the CAC 40 in Paris advanced 0.20 percent to stand at 4,449.68 compared with Thursday s close.

The region s indices had ended lower on Thursday, weighed down by jitters over the upcoming referendum on Scottish independence and the impact of fresh EU sanctions against Russia, traders said.

Tokyo stocks gained 0.25 percent to close at a fresh eight-month high on Friday as the yen lost more ground against the dollar. US stocks finished little changed on Thursday.
