Europe Stocks End Mixed


European stock markets finished mixed. London's Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index fell 5.3 points, or 0.12%, to 4,456.1 as Britain's construction orders rose 6% from September to November.

In Paris, the CAC 40 added 14.42 points, or 0.4%, to 3,626.97 as the Bank of France sees economic growth accelerating. Germany's DAX index rose 13.54 points, or 0.33%, to 4,068.75 after final figures show German GDP fell 0.1% last year, the first decline since 1993, mostly due to first half recession.

Asian markets finished lower Thursday. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 index fell 197.85 points, or 1.82%, to 10,665.15. Traders in Tokyo blamed the strengthening Japanese yen as well as Intel's overnight forecast for pulling the bourses down. Intel's forecast for sales and capital spending missed some analysts' estimates.

In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index lost 71.07 points, or 0.53%, to 13,249.81.
