Europe opens mixed as governments tight curbs

Major stock markets in Europe opened mostly in the positive territory on Wednesday despite soaring concerns surrounding the rapid spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant across the bloc.

The United Kingdom saw a less than expected economic growth in the third quarter of 1.1% during the premarket's session, while another report claimed the Omicron strain seems to be milder compared to the Delta variant.

The DAX gained 0.18% at the opening bell, with Delivery Hero soaring 6.21%. The CAC 40 rose 0.19%. On the other hand, the FTSE 100 slipped 0.11%. The euro lost 0.10% against the dollar to sell for 1.12710 at 9:03 am CET, while the pound traded flat at $1.32763.
