European stock markets rebound at open

Nov 13 2018 11:04

London - Europe's main stock markets rebounded on Tuesday, with all eyes on heavily indebted Italy, whose populist government is set to defy the EU over its big spending plans.

London's benchmark FTSE 100 index gained 0.2% to 7 065.11 points, with investors keenly awaiting an announcement that Britain has sealed a deal over Brexit.

In the eurozone, Frankfurt's DAX 30 jumped 0.7% to 11 402.52 points and the Paris CAC 40 rose 0.4% to 5 077.57.

Global stock markets had tumbled on Monday, with Frankfurt shedding 1.8%, in part on concerns over Tuesday's EU-deadline for Rome to revise its 2019 budget.
