European markets started Tuesday on a bullish note, jumping higher on strong figures from China and Europe.

China's economy could slide to 6.5 percent this year…

China’s economic growth could slide to 6.5 percent this year versus about 6.7 percent in 2016, according to reports on Tuesday, the government run source also suggested that a one-off devaluation could help stabilize the yuan currency. In an article in the Shanghai Securities News, the forecasting department at State Information Center (SIC) has also stated that momentum from new technology would continue to stimulate economic growth, however it would not be merely enough to stop the broader slowing trend. Other forecasts suggest that industrial output could grow 5.9 percent this year, while China’s currency could be further devaluated after having fallen nearly 7 percent last year.

Chinese Markets climb as factory activity picks up…

Chinese markets finished up 1 percent on Tuesday, following a survey showing a pickup in China’s factory activities for December.
