Global stock markets spring higher

London, March 1: Global stock markets rose Friday as investors reacted to a mixed batch of global economic data, and appeared confident that US-China trade talks will yield a positive outcome.

European stock markets showed solid gains by the mid-afternoon, with Frankfurt's rising well over one percent, and Wall Street also up at the start of trading in New York.

“The first day of the new month has started positively for equities,” said Fawad Razaqzada, market analyst at Forex.com.
