Europe: Stocks rebound slightly at open

Published Thu, Sep 15, 2022 · 03:45 PM

EUROPEAN stock markets rebounded somewhat at the open on Thursday (Sep 15), after the previous day’s heavy losses that were triggered by higher-than-expected US inflation.

London’s FTSE 100 index rose 0.6 per cent to 7,322.04 points after also sliding the previous day on news of elevated UK inflation.

In the eurozone, Frankfurt’s DAX index advanced 0.4 per cent to 13,078.51 points and the Paris CAC 40 won 0.2 per cent to 6,236.87.

“Investors regained some poise after the effects of the latest inflation shock subsided,” said Richard Hunter, head of markets at Interactive Investor.

Asian stocks also edged higher, tracking gains on Wall Street as markets adjusted after a rout over US inflation concerns.

Equities sank Wednesday after data showed US annual consumer price inflation slowed by only 8.3 per cent in August from 8.5 per cent in July. AFP
