European Markets Close Higher - Trading Opportunities?

I personally don't trade the European markets but it seems like they're on the up and up. The ASX recently breaking the 5000 barrier and the Australian dollar falling due to the falling interest rate differential between the Aussie and US rates. Anyway, similar pressures abound the European markets, with interest rates also affecting the market there. Here is the summary of European market indexes overnight: The German DAX 30 edged up 0.4 per cent at 5,914, the French CAC 40 rose 0.6 per cent at 5,180 and the UK FTSE 100 rose 0.4 per cent at 5,959.
