On the other hand, several companies bucked the trend and saw their shares surge. Worldline S.A., BE Semiconductor Industries (AS: BESI ) N.V., Dometic Group AB, Jeronimo Martins SGPS S/A, and Atos SE all registered notable gains. Worldline S.A. and BE Semiconductor Industries led the charge with increases of 13.1% and 13% respectively. Dometic Group, Jeronimo Martins, and Atos also posted gains of 11.7%, 10.6%, and 10.1%.

Currencies were also affected with both the pound and euro depreciating against the dollar on Thursday. The euro fell by 0.33%. In addition to these currency shifts, Brent crude prices fell by 1.59% to $87.70 per barrel.

The bond market was not immune to the day's fluctuations either, as yields on both the UK's and Germany's 10-year bonds declined by -0.62 basis points and -1.520 basis points respectively.
