STOCK PRICES on Europe's biggest exchanges were mixed yesterday amid low volume due to the closure of the London market.

In Germany, the DAX Index scraped to its 10th consecutive record close, rising 24.13 points to 6,861.84 points. Just three stocks - DaimlerChrysler, SAP, the software group, and Siemens - contributed 36 points to the DAX between them.

France's CAC-40 index was down 0.13 per cent at 5,827.08 points after a brief rise above 5,900 points. France Telecom ended up 0.3 euros at 126.3 euros despite ART, the French telecoms regulator, ordering it to respect rules for rolling out digital subscriber line technology.
