LONDON, Ramadan 13, 1438, June 08, 2017, SPA — European stocks inched higher and the euro and the pound barely budged, Reuters reported.
Stock markets in London, Frankfurt and Paris were flat to 0.2 percent higher helped by reports of another bank rescue, this time in Italy, and energy shares as oil steadied after 5 percent drop the previous day.
Italy’s bonds cheered the banking sector talk and the pound and the euro were at $1.2972 and $1.1259 respectively, the former near a two-week high and the latter just off a seven-month high.
