European Shares Seen Little Changed, CPI Eyed

European shares are seen opening little changed on Monday, financial bookmakers said, eking out gains after U.S. and Asian shares rallied but with nervy investors eyeing euro-zone CPI data.

U.S. stocks closed higher on Friday, helped by a government report that showed underlying price pressures rose moderately in May, easing fears that inflation would force a near-term rise in interest rates. Asian stocks rallied on Monday, with Japan's Nikkei 225 Average up over 2 percent.

The FTSEurofirst 300 index ended the previous session up 0.5 percent at 1,267.36.

Around Europe, Financial bookmakers see Britain's FTSE 100 unchanged to up 10 points, Germany's DAX up 5 to 10 points and France's CAC-40 down 5 to up 2 points.
