European stocks opened mixed on Monday morning, after stronger-than-anticipated U.S. jobs growth helped to improve fragile market sentiment.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 was flat shortly after the opening bell, with sectors and major bourses pointing in opposite directions.
Market focus is largely attuned to economic data, following a surge in optimism on Wall Street at the end of last week. A U.S. Labor Department report on Friday showed nonfarm payrolls jumped by 304,000 last month - the largest gain since February 2018.
The jobs report, along with better-than-expected manufacturing figures, pointed to underlying strength in the world's largest economy.
Back in Europe, Britain is expected to publish construction PMI figures for January at around 9:30 a.m. London time.
