Europe Markets: European stocks stage small rebound after trade-driven selloff

European stock markets inched higher on Thursday, bouncing slightly back after the prior day’s selloff that came on heightened concerns of a global trade war.

What are markets doing?

The Stoxx Europe 600 index SXXP, +0.20% rose 0.2% to 381.98, after falling 1.3% on Wednesday, for its biggest one-day percentage drop since June 25.

The U.K.’s FTSE 100 index UKX, +0.46% climbed 0.2% to 7,608.09, while France’s CAC 40 index PX1, +0.23% put on 0.1% to 5,361.87.

Germany’s DAX 30 index DAX, +0.18% was up 0.3% at 12,447.53. The German benchmark was the biggest loser among the country-specific indexes on Wednesday, ending 1.5% lower, as industrial stocks were particularly hard hit by trade worries.
