In the rest of Europe, the trend was also up, with the exception of the Madrid square.

Here, the PSI ended up gaining 0.87%, to 6,294.98 points, with 11 quoted in the green and 4 in the red.
The security that most supported the national benchmark index was BCP, adding 3.14% to 19.4 cents, on a day when the rest of European banking also appreciated.
Keefe Bruyette & Woods raised BCP’s “price-target” to 26 cents, so it expects an appreciation of more than 30%.
In energy, Greenvolt stood out in the gains, with a jump of 2.89% to 7.47 euros.
Galp also rose, on a day of appreciation in oil prices, closing up by 1.03% to 12,285 euros.
Nos added 0.15% to 3,972 euros, on the day that Citi raised the operator’s target price – but which still gives it a devaluation potential of 3.36%. Since the beginning of the year, Nos has accumulated an increase of around 15% on the stock market.
Holding back the biggest gains was EDP, which dropped 0.02% to 4,717 euros, but the quoted company that lost the most ground was REN, which dropped 0.85% to 2,915 euros.
