    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The stocks on the European bourses stage a minor rebound, after opening on a weaker note this morning. However, the upside remains capped amid mixed corporate earnings reports while traders refrain from big bets ahead of the key event – ECB meeting tomorrow.

    DAX leads the rebound in European stocks

    Germany’s, the DAX erased losses and climbed higher as investors resort to profit-taking ahead of the ECB meeting due tomorrow. While traders also digest mixed corporate news amid no economic data.
