European stock markets mostly fell on Friday, as investors digested mixed company results, but Paris advanced amid a rosier outlook, analysts said.
Many investors took their cue from Wall Street, which was muted overnight in the face of disappointing jobs and consumer data, dealers said.
The euro edged lower to $1.3262 from $1.3275 in New York late on Thursday and the dollar fell to 98.50 yen from 99.20 yen.
Sterling was stable against the greenback and European single currency.
US stocks opened lower on Friday after recent gains.
