European stocks move up
(05-28 18:59)

European stocks edged up on Wednesday, lifted by gains elsewhere, with Frankfurt approaching the key 10,000-points barrier on a wave of German investor optimism, dealers said.
Frankfurt's DAX 30 index of top shares rose 0.09 percent to 9,950.03 points from Tuesday's closing level, having earlier risen as high as 9,957.87.
London's FTSE 100 gained 0.03 percent to 6,847.21 points and in Paris the CAC 40 added 0.09 percent to 4,533.86.
The euro fell against the dollar, remaining under pressure on expectations the European Central Bank will soon announce fresh measures to combat deflation fears. --AFP
