London - SPA

European shares rose on Friday, recovering after the previous session\'s hefty falls on the prospect of diminished stimulus from the U.S. Federal Reserve, but with traders braced for a choppy ride in the medium term, Reuters reported. The FTSEurofirst 300 was up 0.4 percent at 1,148.24 by 0804 GMT, having slid 3.1 percent on Thursday, its biggest one-day fall in 19 months. The Fed said late on Wednesday that a stronger U.S. economy meant it was likely to start scaling back its asset purchases later this year. Central bank stimulus measures had helped push European markets to five-year highs in 2013 despite a shrinking domestic economy and falling earnings expectations, but the threat of withdrawal has knocked the index around 9 percent since mid-May. \"The fear is ... setting in, with a lot of cutting of bullish positions. The most likely scenario is that rallies will be sold so I would be very careful buying the dip,\" said Lex van Dam, hedge fund manager at Hampstead Capital, which manages around $500 million in assets. Nick Xanders, head of European equity strategy at BTIG, highlighted that the STOXX 600, up 0.3 percent at 284.43, is trading dangerously near its key 284 support level, which cushioned the market in April and February. A breach could lead to further declines. \"I think we\'re a very nervous market,\" he said. \"I don\'t think we\'re done (with the sell-off) ... I think we\'ll definitely be volatile (in the medium term).\" Miners spearheaded the rise on Friday, as investors seized the opportunity to buy into the sector on the cheap. A 0.7 percent advance shaved its weekly drop to around 5 percent. The sector is trading at 9.9 times its 12-month forward price/earnings ratio, compared with the STOXX 600 on 11.8 times, Thomson Reuters StarMine data showed. The mining sector is set for a sharp rally in the near-term, benefiting from attractive valuations and a pick up in commodity prices and in economic activity in China, Societe Generale said, at the same time downgrading target prices for the longer run.
