Mining shares SXPP led profits with a 5% ascend because metals rallied on the news that gives China, the world's number one metals consumer, a good push.

Anglo American, Glencore, and Antofagasta happened to be among the top EU gainers, soaring by 6.1%- 6.9%.

Car equities SXAP that have been affected by worries of soaring levies, headed north by up to 4.2% right after US leader told that China had agreed to reduce import levies on American-made vehicles.

German car makers Volkswagen, BMW, Daimler rallied by 4.8%-6.2%, while car suppliers ascended too. Moreover, tire maker Continental ascended by 4.1%, while Faurecia tacked on by 6.9%.

As for the crude sector SXEP, it gained 2.6% because oil jumped on the trade conflict truce and also ahead of this week’s OPEC gathering, anticipated to result in a supply cut.

Luxury stocks extremely sensitive to the Chinese economy also turned out to be among top performers, with heavyweight conglomerate LVMH adding 5.3%. Additionally, Gucci owner Kering surged by 6.2%.
