Europe Markets End Mixed


European markets were mixed. London's Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index was unchanged at 4,204.4. There was little reaction to a survey that said U.K. factory output rose in the third quarter for the first time in two years.

In Paris, the CAC 40 gained 5.41 points, or 0.16%, to 3,363.93. Vivendi was higher amid speculation its entertainment unit might merge with GE's NBC unit. Germany's DAX index edged down 4.02 points, or 0.11%, to 3,567.2 amid profit taking.

Asian markets finished higher. The Nikkei 225 index rose 19.90 points, or 0.19%, to close at 10,690.08, led by bank stocks. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index gained 36.54 points, or 0.34%, to close at 10,939.94.

Canada's benchmark S&P/TSX rose 56.54 points, or 0.75%, to 7,566.86.
