European stocks rose on Tuesday, as traders digested Wall Street earnings and escalating tensions between Saudi Arabia and the West.
The pan-European Euro Stoxx 600 index ended provisionally 1.54 percent higher with all bourses pushing into positive territory. U.K. stocks were initially hit by a rise in the pound due to optimism over a Brexit deal this week. However as those prospects faded, sterling weakened and, consequentially, U.K.-listed stocks rose.

Earnings news on Wall Street boosted shares across European markets. Goldman Sachs beat analysts' expectations for third-quarter profit and revenue, citing strength in its investment banking and investing and lending divisions.
