Europe: Stock markets edge higher at open


[LONDON] Europe's main stock markets edged higher in opening trade on Thursday as attention turned to US jobs data ahead of Greece's weekend referendum on it bailout.

Frankfurt's DAX 30 climbed 0.10 per cent to 11,191.28 points and in Paris the CAC 40 advanced by 0.31 per cent in value to stand at 4,898.55.

London's FTSE 100 index edged up 0.01 per cent to 6,609.01 points compared with Wednesday's close.

In a volatile week's trading, European stock markets rebounded on Wednesday as Greece proposed a reworked deal on its bailout that was closer to the position of its creditors.
