European markets marked a pause on Monday with London closed for a holiday and after US jobs data and central banks decisions sparked a huge rally last week.
In early afternoon trading, Frankfurt's DAX 30 nudged 0.03-percent higher to 8,124.53 points, while in Paris the CAC 40 lost 0.29 percent to 3,901.74 points.
"After the week of the central banks, investors will be able to take a breather," economists from brokerage Aurel BGC in Paris said in a note.
"Investors should remain on the impression left last week by the two central banks," they said.
