European stocks start third quarter with sturdy revenues

On Monday, European stocks started the fresh quarter with firm profits and Asian stocks kept to two-year profits, while the US dollar leapt from nine-month minimums as American Treasury yields reached their highest value since mid-May.

Crude prices edged down because American drilling activity dipped for the first time since January, although revenues were capped after a Reuters poll, which showed that last month OPEC output reached its year’s peak.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index that experienced its biggest month loss in 2017 on concerns over tightening monetary conditions, inched up 0.7% in early trade, driven by banks as well as basic resources firms.

France's CAC 40 index tacked on 0.8%, Spain's IBEX gained 0.9%, Italy's FTSE MIB surged 1%, while Britain's main benchmark FTSE 100 index leapt 0.3%.

Outside Japan MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks stood still, keeping to a stone's throw of a two-year high reached the previous week.
