In Southern Europe, the Spanish IBEX 35 also saw an uptick, gaining 38.70 points to reach 11,088.80, a rise of 0.35%. This modest but steady growth reflects broader confidence in the region's recovery and economic prospects.

Meanwhile, in Northern Europe, the OMXS30 in Sweden displayed the most significant rise among major indexes, climbing 23.32 points, or 0.90%, to stand at 2,612.42. This nearly 1% increase is a strong signal that investor confidence is particularly high in the Scandinavian markets.

The Polish WIG index also contributed to the positive trend, with a gain of 274.97 points or 0.31%, marking it at 87,702.51. This rise further underscores the steady momentum building across various sectors and countries in Europe.
