European equity close: Strong day throughout

Closing changes for the main bourses:

  • FTSE 100 +0.7%
  • German DAX +0.7%
  • French CAC +0.3%
  • Italy MIB +0.5%
  • Spain IBEX +0.2%
I jumped the gun earlier on these closes because of the time change in North America. They’re closed for real this time and put in a solid day of gains. There was some mild selling into the close as the S&P 500 turns lower.
