lunes 23 de febrero de 2015 02:17 GYT
 

LONDON, Feb 23 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 is likely to open
about 34 points higher, or up 0.5 percent, on Monday; Germany's DAX is
seen rising 55 points, or 0.5 percent, and France's CAC 40 is expected
to gain 39 points, or 0.8 percent, according to IG.
    * Athens clinched a last-minute deal late on Friday to avoid a banking
collapse by accepting a conditional extension of its bailout programme. The
accord requires Greece to submit by Monday a letter to the Eurogroup listing all
the policy measures it plans to take during the remainder of the bailout period.
 
    * The Greek stock market is closed on Monday for a public holiday.
