European stock markets finished lower. London's Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index fell 18.4 points, or 0.42%, to 4,370.3 as Britain's third-quarter GDP rose revised 0.7%, the fastest rate in year, vs. 0.6% originally reported.

In Paris, the CAC 40 was down 2.96 points, or 0.09%, to 3,415.19. Germany's DAX index lost 20.18 points, or 0.54%, to 3,712.98 as the European Union allows Germany and France to exceed deficit limits. The OECD says they'll exceed limits in 2005 also.
