Scoreboard: European optimism

Eurozone banking shares featured among the top gainers on Monday. Italy's fourth biggest bank Banco Popolare rose 8.2 per cent after stronger-than-expected quarterly results. The FTSEurofirst 300 index rose by 1.3 per cent with the German Dax up by 1.9 per cent while the UK FTSE gained 1 per cent. But Australia's major miners were higher in London trade with shares in BHP Billiton up by 1.9 per cent while Rio Tinto rose by 3.6 per cent.
