Europe Markets End Mixed


European markets finished mixed. London's Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index finished down 8.4 points, or 0.20%, at 4,198.00, amid data that U.K. consumer confidence unexpectedly fell in August. A blackout hit most London after the market close, but the lights are coming back although news wires say it's a slow process. While electronic trading may have been disrupted, it looks like things should be back to normal for Friday's session.

In Paris, the CAC 40 finished up 42.93 points, or 1.31% at 3,322.95. Germany's DAX index was up 9.59 points, or 0.28%, at 3,492.67, helped by data that German machinery orders rose 10% in July.

Asian markets finished mixed. Tokyo stocks ended lower amid profit taking mounted ahead of Friday's Japanese industrial production data for July and U.S. economic data including GDP and unemployment. The Nikkei 225 index lost 83.77 points, or 0.81%, to finish at 10,225.22. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index added 81.57 points, or 0.76%, to close at 10,760.12.

Canada's benchmark S&P/TSX rose 16.34 points, or 0.22%, to 7,516.95.
