Gecina bucks light-volume trend in European equity markets

EDINBURGH, May 23 (Reuters) – French real-estate firm Gecina
bucked the trend of low volumes in European share trading on
Friday, as investors were kept cautious by an uncertain
political situation heading into a long weekend for UK equity
traders.

Gecina fell 1.8 percent in volume of twice its
90-day average after a share placing worth roughly 1 percent of
share capital.

GLASGOW Scotland (Reuters) – The British government on Thursday pledged to grant Scots more autonomy if they vote to reject independence and stay a part of the United Kingdom.
