European stocks close

European stocks were little changed, with the benchmark index completing the biggest annual gain since 2009, as U.S. lawmakers faced a midnight deadline to agree on a budget deal to prevent automatic deficit-reduction measures from coming into effect tomorrow.
The Stoxx 600 added 0.1 percent to 279.14 at 1:44 p.m. in London, following a shortened day of trading. The benchmark measure ended the year with a gain of 14 percent.
China’s manufacturing expanded at the fastest pace in 19 months, a report showed today. The final reading of a Purchasing Managers’ Index was 51.5 in December, according to a statement from HSBC Holdings Plc and Markit Economics. That compares with the 50.9 preliminary reading on Dec. 14 and a final 50.5 in November. A level above 50 indicates expansion.
