Europe opens with gains, DAX reaches all-time high

The major stock market indices in Europe started the trading session with gains on Tuesday, with the German DAX climbing to its new record high. The sentiment mostly mirrored the one seen during the week's first trading bout in the United States, while the United Kingdom's decision to ease the COVID-19 lockdown further fueled the optimism among the traders.

On the data front, the investors will keep an eye on reports regarding investor confidence and the unemployment rate in the eurozone, both of which are scheduled for release after the opening bell.

The DAX jumped 1.21% at 9:02 am CET, reaching a fresh record, as Siemens rose by 2.86% at 9:06 am CET. The FTSE 100 was up by 1.14% at the start of the session, with Glencore up by 2.77% a minute later. At the opening bell, the CAC 40 gained 0.86%, climbing to a level it last stood at in August 2007. ArcelorMittal was the best performer on the benchmark, as it advanced by 3.37% at 9:02 am CET.

The euro slid 0.11% versus the dollar, selling for 1.17995 at 9:14 am CET, while the pound dipped 0.22% compared to the dollar, to go for 1.38701 a minute later.
