LONDON, Aug 27 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen jumping higher at the
open on Thursday, buoyed by gains on Asian and U.S. markets after a leading U.S.
central bank official said the prospect of a September rate hike seemed "less
compelling" than before.
    Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 to open up by
111-127-points, or 1.9-2.1 percent higher. Germany's DAX was seen
opening up by 199-275 points, or 2-2.8 percent higher, while France's CAC 40
 was seen rising by 114 points, or 2.5 percent higher.
