[LONDON] Europe's stock markets posted strong gains in opening deals on Friday, mirroring good performances elsewhere on the back of a forecast-busting US jobs report.

In initial trade, London's benchmark FTSE 100 index of major blue-chip companies rose 0.8 per cent to 6,731.11 points.

In the eurozone, Frankfurt's DAX 30 index won almost 1.0 per cent to 14,762.59 points and the Paris CAC 40 added 0.7 per cent to 5,995.45.
