    Good morning and welcome to Live Markets. 
    European shares are seen opening higher today following strong gains on Friday when
continued strenght in company updates helped the pan-European STOXX 600 snap a
three-week losing.
     Over in Asia, shares gained, joining a global recovery for equity markets as sentiment
improved gradually from a recent shakeout that stemmed from fears of creeping inflation and
higher borrowing costs. 
     Financial spreadbetters expect London's FTSE to open 12 points higher at 7,306.4,
Frankfurt's DAX to open 95 points higher at 12,545.5 and Paris' CAC to open 23
points higher at 5,305
