The stock markets across Europe erased early losses to trade moderately higher, but the gains are being capped by losses in mining stocks. At the time of writing, the pan-European Euro Stoxx 50 index was up 0.5%. Stoxx 600 was up 0.15%. Germany’s DAX was up 0.20%. UK’s mining heavy FTSE index was up 0.60% despite losses in the mining stocks. UK’s Anglo American and Antofagasta were down 3% to 5%. Shares in Lufthansa AG were down 1.2%. Meanwhile, German lender Deutsche Bank was up 2.46%. It remains to be seen if the indices manage to stay in the positive territory, especially since the IEA came out bearish on oil prices via its monthly report. A possible drop in oil prices could send stock prices lower again. For more information, read our latest forex news.
