European equities finished higher Monday as investor sentiment continued to be buoyed by the extra liquidity provided by the European Central Bank (ECB) in the region.
The pan-European Euro Stoxx 600 Index saw a gain of 0.9 percent and closed higher at a provisional 400.34 points. The German DAX hit a new all-time record with a rise of 2.2 percent and smashed through the 12,000 point level.
The majority of sectors and European bourses closed higher with autos, financial services and chemical companies leading the rally. Aggressive policy by the ECB continues to lift stocks in the region, which have outperformed their U.S. counterparts so far this year. The euro has also weakened significantly - helping exports - although the single currency was trading higher against the greenback in Monday's session.
