In US, the Dow Jones Industrial Average recorded its best daily gain since mid April as a rally in bank shares amplified a broad-market run-up that has been supported by gains in internet and technology shares. Market participants attributed Wednesday's rally to rising government bond rates. Higher rates tend to benefit the business of financials.

A rise in the yield of the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was supported by remarks from European Central Bank (ECB) senior officials, which showed the central bank remained on track to debate the timetable for ending its asset purchases soon.

Underlying strength in the euro area economy was making ECB confident that inflation will move toward target. The institution would next week discuss how it will wind down its 30 billion euro (about $35 billion) monthly-purchase program.

On the data front, the US trade deficit shrank 2.1% in April and tumbled to a seven-month low. Meanwhile, the productivity of American businesses rose at a revised 0.4% annual pace in the first quarter instead of 0.7% as originally reported. Output—or goods and services produced—climbed 2.7% instead of 2.8%, while unit-labor costs, or how much it costs to make each product, rose by 2.9%, a bit higher than the preliminary 2.7% estimate.
