Europe: Stocks steady at open


[LONDON] Europe's main stock markets were largely steady at the open on Thursday after talks between Greece and its European creditors on restructuring the country's bailout broke up without agreement.

Greece is set to feature heavily at Thursday's European Union summit in Brussels, along with discussions over the Ukraine crisis.

London's benchmark FTSE 100 index edged up 0.06 per cent to 6,822.27 points and Frankfurt's DAX 30 dipped 0.05 per cent to 10,752.11.

The CAC 40 index in Paris slipped 0.20 per cent to open at 4,670.08 points compared with Wednesday's close.
