Britain's FTSE 100 rose 4.6 points, or 0.07% to 6,448. Germany's DAX rose a more robust 62 points, or 0.58% to 10,856. France's CAC 40 was flat, falling 0.03% to 4,921.

Dollar was down for the day, falling to 1.1023 against Euro. Against Sterling it fell to 1.5332. It was own against Yen, trading at 120.85.
