    Stock markets in Europe recovered early losses to trade positive as rise in banking shares overshadowed the losses in energy and mining shares.

    At the time of writing, Stoxx 50 index was up 0.60%. Stoxx 600 index was trading 0.5% higher as well. Germany’s DAX and France’s CAC were up 1% and 0.16% respectively. Meanwhile, UK’s mining heavy FTSE index was up 0.12%.

    Norway’s Seadrill and Subsea 7 were down 3.9% each. In London, shares in Glencore, Tullow Oil and Anglo American were down at least 2% each. In Germany, Bayer AG and Morphosys AG were up 4% each.
