Scoreboard: Crude awakening

Global oil prices declined sharply, while solid earnings and a rally in equities in the US spurred a turnaround in European markets.

European shares recovered in late trade on Tuesday, after hitting an eight-month low earlier in the session. The better earnings results out of the US and rally in US equities prompted the turnaround. Earlier concerns about euro zone growth weighed on markets. The German ZEW monthly survey of economic sentiment fell for a 10th straight month to minus 3.6, the weakest result in almost two years. The FTSEurofirst 300 index rose by 0.1 per cent while the UK FTSE gained 0.4 per cent and the German Dax lifted by 0.2 per cent. And Australia's major miners were stronger in London trade in line with shares in BHP Billiton up by 1.6 per cent while Rio Tinto gained 2.4 per cent.
