Global optimism lifted equity markets Thursday, fuelled by oil breaking through $50 and a debt deal for Greece, but gains were curtailed by profit-taking pending G7 developments and any hints on the next US rate move. "The fresh leg higher in oil we saw overnight, with (Brent oil) breaking above $50 a barrel for the first time since October 2015, has only served to provide more fuel to the rally," XTB brokerage analyst David Cheetham told AFP. In Europe, Frankfurt, London and Paris extended Wednesday's gains that were won on the back of Greece news, bright German data, easing Brexit concerns and firmer oil prices.
