Flat open for European markets
(35 mins ago)

Europe's main stock markets were steady at the open on Thursday following the previous day's strong gains.
London's benchmark FTSE 100 index dipped 0.06 percent to stand at 6,580.54 points compared with Wednesday's close.
Frankfurt's DAX 30 nudged down 0.07 percent to 9,311.03 points and in Paris the CAC 40 gained 0.17 percent to 4,413.36.
European stock markets had rallied on Wednesday as strong company earnings, well-received Chinese growth data and a positive start on Wall Street offset jitters over the Ukraine crisis, traders said.
In a volatile week's trading, shares had ended sharply lower on Tuesday as the escalating military crisis in Ukraine spooked investors. --AFP
