European markets rise on positive economic recovery outlook


Milan, August 8 - Markets advanced across Europe on
Thursday, paced by Milan's FTSE-Mib index, lifted by positive
export data released from a series of nations reflecting
possible economic recovery amid record-low interest rates in the
17-member Eurozone and in the US.
Germany's exports rose 0.6% in June from the previous
month, according to the Federal Statistics Office data. Chinese
overseas shipments meanwhile were calculated to have risen 5.1%
in July from the year-earlier month, the General Administration
of Customs reported Thursday.
The European Central Bank also buoyed markets when it said
it expected rates to stay either at current or lower levels in
its monthly bulletin released during the course of the day.
Italy's FTSE-Mib index jumped 1.8% to 17,146 points.
The yield spread between 10-year Italian bonds and the
German benchmark equivalent, a barometer of Italy's borrowing
costs in the eurozone crisis, closed at 250, the lowest level
since May 22.
Ten-year bond yields levelled at 4.2%.
The Frankfurt Dax bourse rose 0.7% to 8,318, while the
Paris Cac 40 Index gained 0.6% to 4,064 points.
Madrid's Ibex index advanced 1.1 % to 8,671 points.
London's Ftse-100 stock market jumped 0.3% to 6,529 points.
