    Stock indices closed mixed as Friday's terror attacks in Paris weighed on stock markets. Terror attacks' impact on markets was limited.

    The European Central Bank (ECB) Vice President Vitor Constancio said in Frankfurt on Monday that terror attacks in Paris could have a negative impact on markets.

    "It can compound all the problems that we were already facing," he said.

    "Markets, so far, are taking it calmly," Constancio added.

    He also said in a speech in Frankfurt on Monday that the central bank will continue its asset-buying programme until the inflation will pick up toward the central bank's 2% target.

    Constancio pointed out that there are downside risks to the outlook for growth and inflation in the Eurozone from the slowdown in in emerging economies and "unfavourable developments in financial and commodity markets".

    He noted that the inflation in the Eurozone remains low due to low oil prices and a lack of demand.

    Meanwhile, the economic data from the Eurozone was positive. Eurostat released its final consumer price inflation data for the Eurozone on Monday. Eurozone's final harmonized consumer price index rose 0.1% in October, in line with the preliminary reading, after a 0.2% increase in September.
