London - AFP

European stock markets mostly rose while the euro fell against the dollar on Monday as a rally sparked by last week\'s surprise EU summit deal waned amid more weak eurozone data, analysts said. Focus was also on the banks, as Barclays chairman Marcus Agius paid the price of \"devastating\" damage to the lender, resigning over the rigging of key global interest rates which has sullied London\'s image as a financial centre. London\'s benchmark FTSE 100 index climbed 0.50 percent to 5,599.06 points approaching midday in the British capital and on the first trading day of the third quarter. The previous quarter had seen heavy losses for markets as the eurozone debt crisis took a firm hold of Spain. The interest rates which Spain and Italy must pay to borrow, critical factors in the crisis, continued to ease. Frankfurt\'s DAX 30 advanced 0.83 percent to 6,469.44 points and in Paris the CAC 40 climbed 0.85 percent to 3,197.06. Madrid\'s IBEX 35 fell 0.31 percent to 7,080.30 points. In foreign exchange deals, the euro retreated to $1.2632 from $1.2654 late on Friday in New York. \"Monday\'s session sees the euphoria sparked by last week\'s EU summit cooling somewhat -- with stocks still benefitting but off session highs,\" said Ishaq Siddiqi, market strategist at trading group ETX Capital. European leaders at the end of last week agreed to use emergency funds to support ailing banks directly and to ease pressure on governments\' debt burdens through bond purchases. They also agreed on $150 billion in fresh funds to boost growth. \"The European summit concluded without agreement on the long-term details (fiscal union etc), but did offer relief for Spain and Italy with direct bank funding\" from the eurozone bailout fund, the National Australia Bank said in a note. It added the agreement was \"positive, but there are questions about how long this takes to establish.\" Official data published Monday showed that eurozone unemployment climbed to a record high of 11.1 percent in May, with Spain the hardest hit at 24.6 percent. More than 17.5 million people were jobless in the 17-nation single currency area in May, as 88,000 more men and women joined unemployment queues, according to Eurostat data agency. Also weighing on markets were two closely-watched surveys that showed weak manufacturing activity in China, renewing concerns about a slowdown in the world\'s second-largest economy, traders said. Official data released Sunday showed manufacturing activity fell to a seven-month low in June. The official purchasing managers\' index (PMI) slipped to 50.2 last month from 50.4 in May, industry group the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing said. On Monday, the PMI from British bank HSBC, which focuses more on small- and medium-sized companies, showed manufacturing activity contracting for the eighth consecutive month in June. In London meanwhile, shares in Barclays jumped 3.84 percent to 169 pence. The beleaguered bank on Monday announced the departure of Agius, and promised an independent audit after British and US authorities last week together fined Barclays amid international probes into several lenders over alleged rigging of inter-bank rates. In Paris, the price of shares in French bank Credit Agricole soared on rumours that it might sell its Greek subsidiary Emporiki, while the National Bank of Greece said it had held talks with the French bank. The stock rose 7.69 percent to reach 3.74 euros in late morning trading, posting the biggest rise on the CAC 40.
