Europe's leading stock markets closed broadly flat on Friday as traders pored over key US economic data for clues on when the Federal Reserve will start scaling back its huge stimulus programme.
At the close, London's benchmark FTSE 100 index fell 0.08 percent at 6,583.8 points.
Frankfurt's DAX 30 firmed 0.18 percent to 8,509.42 points and the CAC 40 in Paris gained 0.19 percent to 4,114.5 points.
"In focus are the retail sales numbers and consumer sentiment from the US," said Gekko Markets trader Anita Paluch.
