European Factors to Watch-Shares seen stalling at open

(Adds company news)

LONDON, Aug 26 (Reuters) - European shares were seen stalling at the open on Wednesday, with a wobble in Asian markets and a fall overnight on U.S. stock markets potentially muting the impact of a sharp rally in the previous session fuelled by a Chinese rate cut.

Spreadbetters at London Capital Group expected Britain's FTSE 100 to open down by 103 points, or 1.7 percent lower, while Germany's DAX was seen down by 242 points, or 2.4 percent lower, while France's CAC futures were also down 3.1 percent. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- > GLOBAL MARKETS-Asian shares wobble as China rate cut fails to calm nerves > US STOCKS-Wall Street rally goes up in smoke, indexes end lower > Nikkei up in choppy trade, sentiment fragile despite China policy easings > TREASURIES-U.S. bonds fall as safety bids abate on China's rate cut > FOREX-Dollar subdued after China easing fails to shore up Shanghai shares > PRECIOUS-Gold struggles even as equities drop further after China rate cut > METALS-Copper resumes decline as demand worries linger despite China move > Oil near 6-1/2 year lows as China economy fears linger
