In the US markets, stocks finished in positive territory, with the Dow logging a five-day win streak, but off their session highs after senate majority leader Harry Reid threw cold water on the ongoing "fiscal cliff" negotiations saying that it will be hard to reach a budget deal by Christmas, adding that democrats aren't going to make an offer on spending cuts for republican.

On economic data front, the US trade deficit widened in October as exports suffered the biggest drop in nearly four years. The trade gap increased 4.9 percent to USD 42.2 billion even as imports declined to the lowest level in one and a half years.
