European markets open positive
(01-29 17:10)

European stocks rose at the open on Wednesday, as concerns over emerging markets eased after a big rate rise in Turkey and before a decision on Federal Reserve stimulus.
But in morning trading, an initial rally for the Turkish lira showed signs of running out of steam.
In opening deals, London's benchmark FTSE 100 index gained 0.42 percent to 6,599.91 points, Frankfurt's DAX 30 rallied 1.07 percent to 9,507.35 points and the CAC 40 in Paris won 0.84 percent to 4,220.54. --AFP
