    European stocks mixed; recession concerns clash with China reopening

    European stock markets traded mixed Wednesday, as investors digested the further easing of COVID restrictions in China as well as regional recessionary concerns. German industrial production fell less than expected in October, dropping 0.1% on the month, instead of the forecast 0.6% decrease, in part dragged down by a decrease in production in energy-intensive industrial sectors. While this release offered relatively good news, European investors are still having to cope with anemic growth and tightening monetary policy to cope with stubbornly high inflation.
