European shares end whipsaw session lower on tech rout

London, European shares ended lower in a wild trading session on Friday as technology stocks tracked losses on Wall Street, while merger talks between two major Spanish lenders lifted the banking index, Reuters reported.
The pan-European STOXX 600 index settled 1.1% lower after flitting between gains and losses, while also shedding about 1.9% for the week on a two-day technology rout.
The European technology sector fell 2.7% to end at a one-month low, underperforming its peers for the week with a 4.1% drop.
The STOXX 600 has stayed well within a trading range seen since June, as a euro zone economic recovery appeared to be running out of steam.
