European indexes advance today following a profitable trading session in Asia. The pan-European index STOXX 600 surged 1.03%, main sectors of economy show firm gains. The UK’s FTSE rose 0.84%, the German DAX climbed 0.39%, the French CAC 40 jumped 0.60%.
In Japan the Nikkei 225 edged up 1.07% after a 3.1% fall on Thursday when the Bank of Japan decided to delay the introduction of extra stimulus measures. The Topix added 0.8%, the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 managed to pick up 0.7%.
The situation in Hong Kong is favourable like in the whole Asia today. However, currently global markets feel tension due to the coming referendum in the UK. Investors consider that the murder of the UK Parliament Member might change the sentiment in favour of remaining in the EU. The Hang Seng index rose 0.7%, although it lost 4.1% this week. The China Enterprises Index increased by 0.9%. In Hong Kong leading sectors of economic activity demonstrate positive dynamics.
