Second weekly gain, Up 7% this year

European stocks are heading for a second weekly gain on the back of a rally in the mining and energy shares. The stocks were heading for a worst December since 2002 before the 2.7% rise witnessed yesterday. 

The Stoxx 600 has advanced 7% this year through yesterday. Stocks were up 21% earlier this year before falling on multiple concerns – Greek crisis, Chinese slowdown and rout in commodities.
