European stock markets steadied at the open on Wednesday, a day after slumping in line with global equities on fears that rising inflation could harm economic recovery from the pandemic.

London's benchmark FTSE 100 index gained 0.3% to 6 970.32 points after shedding 2.5% Tuesday.

In the eurozone Wednesday, Frankfurt's DAX 30 index opened fractionally lower at 15 117.03 points and the Paris CAC 40 was up a few points at 6 268.63.
