After what is being dubbed “Black Monday,” there appeared to be a rosier Tuesday in store for the markets – in Europe at least.

Shares made gains after 450 billion euros was wiped off the value of leading stocks.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index, which slumped 5.4 percent on Monday, rose 1.8 percent, while the eurozone’s blue-chip Euro STOXX 50 index advanced 1.9 percent.

Britain’s FTSE 100 and Germany’s DAX also bounced back from a five percent drop on Monday, to climb by 1.5 and 1.7 percent respectively.

Global financial markets have been rattled by China’s devaluation of the yuan and a sell-off in the markets.

Stocks slumped in China again on Tuesday – by seven percent – to their lowest level since December.

Panic selling intensified after the Shanghai Composite Index crashed through the key support level of 3,000 points.
