The Spanish benchmark led the winners, advancing 0.52% and followed by the DAX and the CAC40, up 0.39% and 0.22%, respectively.

In another tone, the single currency extends its appreciation against the greenback, fading the bull run to weekly highs near 1.3620 and now hovering over the vicinity of 1.3600 the figure. Positive week for the sterling so far, advancing well into the 1.6300 handle and trading closer to the 2013 peaks at 16382.
