With the hope of an economic recovery in China and in view of slightly falling capital market interest rates, the recovery of the German stock market from the beginning of the week continued on Tuesday. The leading index Dax gained 0.3 percent to 15,841 points in the first few minutes of trading. The MDax of medium-sized titles rose in the morning by 0.5 percent to 27,432 points. The EuroStoxx 50, the leading index for the euro zone, was also somewhat firmer.
