    MORNING CALL: EUROPE SEEN HIGHER (0617 GMT) 
    Good morning and welcome to Live Markets. 
    European stocks are set for a positive open on the first day of February, recovering the
slight losses seen in the previous session when the broader STOXX 600 index fell for a
third straight session to its lowest level in almost four weeks. The STOXX ended January up 1.6
percent. 
    Overnight Asian shares eked out modest gains, clawing back sharp losses from earlier this
week, however, rising U.S. bond yields and interest rates could dampen investors' optimism
toward the global economic outlook.
    Here are your opening calls, courtesy of CMC Markets.
    FTSE100 is expected to open 23 points higher at 7,556
    DAX is expected to open 41 points higher at 13,230
    CAC40 is expected to open 14 points higher at 5,495
