[LONDON] Europe's major stock markets advanced on Thursday in opening deals, after dizzying losses the previous day, as investors digested new lockdowns in France and Germany to combat soaring coronavirus infection rates.

The benchmark Paris CAC 40 shares index rose 0.5 per cent to 4,591.83 points, Frankfurt's DAX 30 added 0.6 per cent to 11,624.32 and London's FTSE 100 gained 0.2 per cent to 5,594.08. All three markets had fallen sharply the previous day.
