Markets also cheered widening current account surplus data from the 19-nation bloc released earlier today.The euro zone's current account surplus widened to EUR36.2 billion in April, compared with a revised EUR26.3 billion in the previous month, according to the ECB's report.Germany's DAX 30 index jumps 1.20% to 9,663 points, while the UK’s FTSE rises 1.10% to 6,017. Among the other indices, the French CAC 40 index advances 1.26% to 4,206 levels, while the pan-European Euro Stoxx 50 index bounces 1.29% to 2,861 points.
