    European stocks rise, clocking best quarter in four years

    The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed up 0.6 percent, having earlier hit session highs on encouraging signals from U.S.-China trade talks. The benchmark clocked its best quarter in four years, although gains in March were lower than in the previous two months as a bruising trade war which contributed to a slowdown in global growth and the chaos around Brexit hit sentiment. All sub-sectors within the pan-regional benchmark ended the quarter higher, led by the retail sector's 20 percent surge over the last three months.
