    EUROPEAN MORNING CALL: SHARES SEEN OPENING SIDEWAYS (0625 GMT)
    Good morning and welcome to Live Markets. European shares are set to open sideways on Monday
with the U.S. government still shut down but with hopes of an end to the political deadlock in
Germany with German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives getting ready to start formal
coalition talks with the Social Democrats (SPD). 
    Earlier, U.S. stock futures, Asian equities and the dollar pulled back slightly as the U.S.
government is shut down amid a dispute between President Donald Trump and Democrats over
immigration.   
    London's FTSE 100 is expected to open 14 points lower, Germany's DAX 31 points higher and
France's CAC 40 up 5 points.
