Europe Markets: European stocks battle for the black and another win

European stocks were charting a tough course on Friday, after a week that so far has produced gains of more than 3% for the German market.

The Stoxx Europe 600 SXXP, -0.05% traded flat at 346.58, a day after logging a 0.8% gain, which was fueled by higher oil prices. The index has gained in six of the past seven trading days, and is up 1.6% week-to-date.
