European shares turn positive on Bernanke remarks

LONDON, Oct 15 (BestGrowthStock) – European shares went back into
positive territory on Friday afternoon, after U.S. Federal
Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said there was a case for more
stimulus.

At 1221 GMT, the FTSEurofirst 300 (.FTEU3: ) index of top
European shares was up 0.1 percent at 1,086.07 points, having
been in and out of positive territory earlier in the session.

Bernanke said high unemployment and low inflation point to a
need for a further easing of U.S. monetary policy, but said
policymakers were still weighing how aggressive they should be.
