Rising Business Sentiment Boosts German Stocks


Europe markets ended the session mixed. In London, the Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index was down 21.60 points, or 0.40%, to 5,408.70. Gains were restrained by a report showing second-quarter GDP growth slowed to 0.3% from 0.5% in the first quarter. In France, the CAC 40 lost 22.73 points, or 0.47%, to 4,812.14. In Germany, the DAX Index gained 4.10 points, or 0.08%, to 5,220.21, following a report showing an unexpected rise in business confidence.

Asia markets closed mixed. Japan's Nikkei 225 index gained 116.05 points, or 1.03%, to close at 11,396.43. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index lost 251.78 points, or 2.20%, to close at 11,188.57.

Canada's benchmark TSE 300 spent the day in positive territory and closed up 65.6 points to 7538.6.
