Oil prices jumped almost 2 percent to a six-week high on Wednesday after a U.S. report showed a bigger weekly draw than forecast in crude and gasoline stocks along with a surprise drop in distillate inventories. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) said U.S. crude stocks fell 4.7 million barrels during the week ended July 14. Brent futures for September delivery settled up 86 cents, or 1.8 percent, at $49.70, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude for August settled up 72 cents, or 1.6 percent, at $47.12 on its second to last day as the front month.
European shares inched higher on Thursday, with investors less keen to chase the previous session's strong rally that came on the back of the relatively dovish tone struck by Fed chair Janet Yellen overnight. The pan-European STOXX 600 was up 0.3 percent at its close while blue-chips gained 0.4 percent, with rate-sensitive real estate stocks, which were top gainers on Wednesday, tracking more modest gains. On Wednesday, the European benchmark posted its best day since Emmanuel Macron's victory in the first round of French presidential elections, as banks and yield plays rallied.
Germany's Commerzbank (CBKG.DE) said on Thursday that management and employee representatives had hammered out guidelines for job cuts that were announced last year as part of a major restructuring.

Commerzbank said it aimed to complete details of negotiations by the end of 2017.
