Europe starts mixed as no-deal Brexit looms large

Major stock market indices in Europe traded mixed at the open on Friday as investors fretted over the outcome of Article 50 process. The latest CNBC survey showed that the majority of CFOs believe Britain will exit the European Union without a deal regulating future relations.

The European Central Bank's decision to reintroduce quantitative easing in a bid to stimulate the ailing Eurozone economy is also likely to influence traders' decisions.

On the data front, market participants will be in for fresh EU trade balance figures.

The German DAX traded flat shortly after the opening bell. The CAC 40 added 0.15% at the start as BNP Paribas rose 1.16%. Meanwhile, the British FTSE 100 lost 0.14% as the session kicked off as RELX dropped 1.16%.

The British pound added 0.54% against the US dollar, going for 1.24000 at 9:00 am CET.
