London's Key Index Ends Slightly Higher


Europe markets were mixed. In London, the Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index finished slightly higher, up 19.80 points, or 0.39%, to 5,036.00, following the weak U.S. jobs report. But London investors were still encouraged by the Bank of England's rate cut to bolster economy. Germany's DAX Index was off 60.44 points, or 1.33%, to 4,487.69, on the weak U.S. jobs report. In France, the CAC 40 finished down 31.04 points, or 0.74%, to 4,164.76.

Canada's benchmark TSE 300 slipped 5.21 points, or 0.1%, to 6,894.20, to end the week up 0.8%. Nine of the 14 subindices rose, and five fell.

Asia markets closed flat to lower. The Nikkei rose 0.39 of a point to 10,205.87 as technology stocks gathered momentum in the afternoon session, offsetting losses in bank shares. Meanwhile, Hong Kong's Hang Seng lost 9.01 points, or 0.09%, to 10,277.38.
