    Good morning and welcome to Live Markets. European shares are set to open lower today at the
end of a directionless week where the pan-regional STOXX 600 has gained less than 0.1
percent so far following two weeks of gains.
    Over in Asia, stocks shook off losses on Wall Street and edged up to record highs on Friday
following China's announcement of faster-than-expected fourth quarter growth, while worries over
a possible U.S. government shutdown weighed on the dollar.
    Here are your opening calls, courtesy of CMC Markets:
    FTSE100 is expected to open 6 points lower at 7,694
    DAX is expected to open 20 points lower at 13,261
    CAC40 is expected to open 9 points lower at 5,486    
    And here are the weekly moves on the STOXX over the past 3 months.
