The EURO STOXX 50 headed north 0.21%, Germany’s DAX 30 rallied 0.27% and France’s CAC 40 tacked on 0.08%.

Financial markets demonstrated little reaction after on Wednesday North Korean told that it had successfully tested a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile reportedly capable of reaching the American mainland.

As for financial stocks, they mostly rallied because French lender Societe Generale jumped 0.09%, Germany's Deutsche Bank along with Commerzbank soared 0.65% and 1.029% respectively.

Italy's Intesa Sanpaolo as well as Unicredit inched up respectively 0.07% and 0.41%, while Spanish financial institutions Banco Santander and also BBVA earned respectively 0.39% and 0.15%.
