European Markets    

European markets trading day was on low volumes and narrow ranges, ignoring the N. Korean crisis and very few stocks stood out of the crowd. Health care stocks were lower by 0.4% while autos and Industrials pushed the markets higher. The weaker Euro also played its part in the positive close for the DAX and CAC, sending the shares of VW and Airbus to the top of the EURSXX50.
