Europe's main stock markets advanced strongly for a second day running on Wednesday as investors focused on upbeat economic data and set aside Ukraine-Russia worries, dealers said.
Frankfurt's DAX 30 rallied 1.18 percent to 9,448.58 points, boosted by data showing German consumer confidence at a seven-year high in March.
In Paris the CAC 40 index jumped 0.94 percent compared with Tuesday's close to 4,385.15 points.
However, London's benchmark FTSE 100 index was broadly flat, carving out just a one-point gain, ending the trading session at 6,605.30 points.
