The Vienna Stock Exchange closed today, Friday, in a friendly direction. The local benchmark ATX index rose 12.94 points, or 0.33 percent, to 3,971.97 points, compared to Thursday’s close (3,959.03). ATX Prime closed up 0.31 percent, or 6.14 points, at 1,988.21 units.
The European stock exchange environment was mostly weaker. Ahead of the weekend, the focus was on current economic news from Europe and the US. The US economy created much fewer jobs than expected in December, but the continued decline in the unemployment rate reached its pre-crisis level. In addition, hourly wages rose 0.6 percent, more than expected.
The higher-than-expected consumer prices in the Eurozone did not affect the markets. In December, the inflation rate rose to 5.0 percent, the highest level since the introduction of the euro. On the other hand, economists expected a slight decrease.
