Canada Shares Finish Flat


Canada's benchmark TSE 300 ended down 6.64 points to 7,663.85, trimming its losses after an initial drop following news of higher U.S. unemployment data.

European stock markets ended mostly lower, after trading higher earlier on positive earnings news from companies such as BP Plc and Volkswagen AG. But Vodafone Group Plc (VOD ) was notably lower after the telecom company cut profit forecasts for its Italian and German wireless units.
