Europe Stocks Finish Lower


European stocks finished lower after the U.S. payrolls disappointment. London's Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index slipped 27.9 points, or 0.62%, at 4,466.30, amid a steep drop in shares of Shell and Royal Dutch. A report showed that the U.K.'s global trade deficit rose to 4.4 billion pounds, up from 4.2 billion in October.

In Paris, the CAC 40 slipped 17.93 points, or 0.5%, to 3,574.80. Germany's DAX index slipped 29.25 points, or 0.72%, to 4,016.18. The market had been aided a bit by a report showing that Germany's November exports rose 4.1%, despite the strong euro.

In Asia, stocks finished higher. Japan's Nikkei 225 index gained 127.40 points, or 1.18%, to 10,965.05. Weakness in bank issues could not offset strength in Toshiba, Canon, Sony and other technology issues. Intel's buoyant comments this week also spurred the buying of tech stocks in Tokyo.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng index added 182.21 points, or 1.38%, to close at 13,385.80.

Canada's benchmark S&P/TSX fell 34.23 points, or 0.41%, to 8,352.19.
