Stock indices traded lower on concerns over new terrorist attacks. 129 people died in Paris on Friday.
The European Central Bank (ECB) executive board member Yves Mersch said on Wednesday that there is no indication that terror attacks in Paris will have a negative impact on the economy.
"We have no indication of any economic pessimism as a result of the Paris attacks, let alone weaker hard data. Doom-and-gloom talk is not warranted at this stage," he said.
