European stock markets mid-session: Indices decline moderately pausing after yesterday’s rally
European stocks moderately decline from highs hit yesterday on mixed corporate earnings after being almost flat in early trading. Yesterday markets were fuelled by FED chair Yellen's comments on the banks plans not to hike interest rates in the near future and Eurozone's extensions of the Greek bailout for four further months.
