European Shares Set to Pause After 3-Day Rally

European equities were seen mixed on Monday, pausing after a three-session rally as steady oil prices around $127 a barrel keep inflation worries at the front of investors' mind.

Financial bookmakers, or spread betters, in London expected Britain's FTSE 100 index to open between 11 and 13 points lower, the German DAX down 6 to 11 points, and the French CAC 40 down 3 to 7 points.

European shares rose on Friday, powered by a drop in the oil price and a recovery in the
banking sector.
