Europe Stocks End Lower

European stock markets finished lower, as a weak opening on Wall Street helped extend declines in the afternoon. London's FTSE 100 finished down 9.90 points, or 0.19%, to 5,208.10, amid nerves about a decline in U.S. stocks. The biggest contributors to the decline in the FTSE included HSBC Holdings, BP-Amoco, and Royal Bank of Scotland.

France's CAC 40 index ended down 42.19 points, or 0.95%, to 4,400.75. Germany's DAX index was off 37.42 points, or 0.95%, to 4,998.99, amid news that German metal workers accepted a new wage package.

Asian stocks ended higher. Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 9.22 points, or 0.08%, to 11,856.54, amid a declaration by the Japanese government that the country's economy has hit a bottom.
