    Political risk hits Milan bourse, weak euro backs European shares

    MILAN/LONDON (Reuters) - Italy's two anti-system parties' progress to form a coalition and free up billions of euros for tax cuts and welfare scared off investors and hit the Milan bourse on Wednesday while a weak euro provided support to the broader European market. The pan-European STOXX 600 (.STOXX) index rose 0.2 percent, hovering around its highest level since early February but Italy's FTSE MIB (.FTMIB) fell 2.3 percent, its worst fall since the election took place in early March. Italian banks , which are seen as a proxy for political risk in the country due to notably to their government bond holdings, fell 3.68 percent as borrowing costs jumped.

    U.K. stocks end at 4-month high as Burberry, Paddy Power rally

    U.K. stocks advanced Wednesday, finishing at a four-month high as shares of Burberry and Paddy Power Betfair climbed after well-received corporate updates. The FTSE 100 index (^FTSE) rose 0.2% to 7,734.20, its highest close since Jan. 16, according to FactSet data. A weaker pound tends to boost the FTSE 100 as the index’s components make the bulk of their earnings overseas, with a softening sterling lifting revenues when converted back into the U.K. currency.
