Germany’s benchmark DAX index closes 100 points down

Frankfurt, Sep 11 (IANS) The benchmark DAX index at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange fell nearly 100 points and closed above 10,000 points on Thursday.

The blue-chip index lost 90.68 points (0.9 percent) and closed at 10,210.44 points.

The effect of the sharp rebound of the Japanese stock market on German shares faded away, while economic data from Asia and Europe weighed on the confidence of investors, Xinhua news agency reported.
