European Shares Set to Open Flat as Holiday Shuts US

European shares were seen opening little changed on Friday, financial bookmakers said, with investors struggling for direction as the U.S. market closes for a holiday and with little to eye on the economic or corporate calendars.

Financial bookmakers in London see Britain's FTSE 100 opening unchanged to down 3 points, Germany's DAX up 1 to 6 points and France's CAC up 1 to 10 points.

The U.S. market will be closed throughout Friday for Independence Day.
