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% to 6 731.11 points.
In the eurozone, Frankfurt’s DAX 30 index won almost 1.0% to 14 762.59 points and the Paris CAC 40 added 0.7% to 5 995.45.
