European Markets:    

European markets traded in the typical October fashion, narrow ranges and closing in the green. Most major sectors closed flat while the DAX did not trade on a German vacation day. Better than expected results from Ryanair sent the travel and leisure sector higher 1.1% and the Energy sector bucked the trend closing up on better than expected earnings from oil giant BP while banking stocks lagged the markets.
