London - AFP

European stock markets rebounded strongly on Friday following heavy losses the previous day, buoyed by a surge in US jobs underlining a firm recovery in the world's biggest economy.
The US economy pumped out 321,000 new jobs in November, the highest monthly number in nearly three years, the Labor Department said Friday.
Frankfurt's DAX 30 soared 2.25 percent to a new closing record of 10,087.12 points, and the CAC 40 in Paris climbed 2.25 percent to 4,419.48 points compared with Thursday's close.
London's benchmark FTSE 100 index rose 0.95 percent to end the week at 6,742.84 points.
Following the trend, Milan's FTSE MIB index soared 3.41 percent to close at 20,087 points, and in Madrid the IBEX 35 rose 2.64 percent to 10,900.7 points.
Europe's equity markets had slumped on Thursday after the European Central Bank disappointed investors eager for central bank stimulus to revive the stalling eurozone economy, traders said.
Investors on Friday "responded to reports that emerged after the close on Thursday that claimed the ECB is preparing a broad based quantitative easing (stimulus) package for January", said Craig Erlam, market analyst at Alpari traders.
Wall Street That was followed Friday by the unexpectedly strong US employment report for November showing that the US recovery "evidently remains strong... These figures bode well for our forecast of continued strong expansion," said Robert Wood, Berenberg's chief UK economist.
Wall Street stocks rose moderately higher Friday. About 45 minutes into trade, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.23 percent at 17,941.55.
The broad-based S&P 500 advanced 0.18 percent to 2,075.59, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index added 0.29 percent at 4,783.24.
The oil market dropped lower by the end of the week after major producer Saudi Arabia slashed the price of the crude it sells to Asia and the United States, analysts said.
Brent North Sea crude for delivery in January sank to $68.36 a barrel in London deals compared with $73.05 one week earlier.
US benchmark West Texas Intermediate or light sweet crude for January dived to $65.31 a barrel from $69.13 a week earlier.
Sliding oil prices have contributed to the drop in inflation to worrying low levels in the eurozone, with some countries even seeing outright falling prices.
Deflation may sound good for the consumer, but falling prices can trigger a vicious spiral where businesses and households delay purchases, throttling demand and causing companies to lay off workers.
The ECB on Thursday held its main "refinancing" rate steady at 0.05 percent, as expected at its monthly policy meeting, and its chief Mario Draghi said the bank has stepped up preparations for more anti-deflation measures, but that these will be reassessed only in January.
The euro fell in Friday trading to $1.2305 compared with $1.2380 late in New York on Thursday. The European single currency had fallen to a two-year low of $1.2280 ahead of the ECB's announcements.
The dollar reached a new seven-year high at 121.69 yen on Friday.
Gold fell to $1,194 an ounce from $1,209 Thursday on the London Bullion Market.
