Topping the market, Fresnillo soared more than 5.7%.Other miners were also among top advancers. Particularly, shares of Anglo American added 4.8%, while those of Antofagasta PLC jumped 3.48%. Rio Tinto PLC and Glencore PLC witnessed their stocks climbed 3.76% and 2.06%, respectively.

On the other hand, the Sterling advanced almost 0.5% versus the dollar ahead of the trigger of Brexit negotiations which may come later this month.
