Canada Shares End Lower


Canada's benchmark S&P/TSX fell 43.57 points to 6,819.76.

European markets ended mixed. In London, the Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index was down 5.90 points, or 1.4%, to 4,224.10. In France, the CAC 40 added 1.24 points, or 0.04%, to 3,513.34, even though French Industrial Production unexpectedly fell 0.3% in May. However, inflation remained at a 5-month low. And in Germany, the DAX Index was up 12.30 points, or 0.30%, to 4,130.80.

In Asia, the markets finished with gains. The Nikkei climbed 115.71 points, or 1.10%, to 10,601.45. Equities bounced back on better sentiment, following a lull in the downtrend of U.S. stocks overnight and upside potential in U.S. corporate earnings. The upside, however, was limited in the wake of uncertainty over the appreciating yen.

In Hong Kong, the market added 89.49 points, or 0.85%, to 10,648.30.
