(Reuters) – Renewed optimism over a U.S.-China trade deal and a smaller-than-expected decline in German economic output fuelled a rally in European stocks on Tuesday, with Frankfurt shares hitting a 1-month high.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index (STOXX) rose 0.8% by 0711 GMT, extending this week’s gains on the back of positive updates on COVID-19 treatment efforts.

Lifting sentiment, top U.S. and Chinese trade officials reaffirmed their commitment to the Phase 1 trade deal despite diplomatic rifts between the two countries.

The trade-sensitive German DAX (GDAXI) rose 1%, helped by data showing Europe’s largest economy contracted by a record 9.7% in the second quarter, but marked a minor upward revision from an earlier estimate of -10.1%.

All eyes will be on the Ifo institute’s business climate index for August, due to be released at 0800 GMT.

Among individual stocks, technology company Aveva Group (L:AVV) rose 3.2% after announcing a deal to buy OSIsoft, a privately held maker of industrial software, for an enterprise value of $5 billion.

LVMH (PA:LVMH) gained 1.1% after a source told Reuters the French luxury goods giant and U.S. jewellery chain Tiffany (N:TIF) will give themselves another three months to complete their $16.2 billion tie-up.
