European stocks End Higher


European stocks finished higher. London's Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index added 21.20 points, or 0.47%, at 4,494.20, amid strength in telecoms, and optimism for a robust quarterly earnings season in the U.S. The Bank of England's decision not to raise U.K. interest rates has little market impact.

In Paris, the CAC 40 rose 29.22 points, or 0.82%, at 3,592.73. Germany's DAX index gained 41.03 points, or 1.02%, to 4,045.43.

In Asia, stocks finished higher. Japan's Nikkei 225 index gained 79.83 points, or 0.74%, to 10,837.65, after two sessions of losses. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index added 45.91 points, or 0.35%, to close at 13,203.59.

Canada's benchmark S&P/TSX fell 2.11 points, or 0.02%, to 8,386.42.
