Stocks mostly rise but Japan skids on stark economic data
BANGKOK (AP) — Global stocks mostly rose Monday, with Shanghai's benchmark jumping over 2% after the central bank rolled out support for the economy amid a virus outbreak that has infected over 71,000 people globally. Japan's market slumped, however, on weak economic growth figures.
Britain's FTSE 100 gained 0.3% to close at 7,433.25, while France's CAC 40 gained 0.3% to 6085.95.
