Europe: Stocks diverge in initial trade
[LONDON] European stock markets diverged Monday at the opening bell in a muted reaction to US-led strikes on Syria.
London's FTSE 100 index fell 0.1 per cent to 7,254.83 points, with UK advertising giant WPP diving four percent after chief executive Martin Sorrell resigned over the weekend.
In the eurozone, Frankfurt's DAX 30 rose 0.3 per cent to 12,478.99 points compared with Thursday's closing level.
However in Paris there was no data immediately available for the CAC 40 index due to a technical incident, according to a statement from Euronext.
