European stock markets traded lower Friday, ending the week with confidence at a low ebb given fears of more economic damage from fresh Covid-inspired lockdowns while the earnings deluge continues. At 3:50 AM ET (0850 GMT), the DAX in Germany traded 0.6% lower, the CAC 40 in France fell 0.2%, while the U.K.'s FTSE index climbed 0.2%.
