European Factors to Watch-Shares seen slipping lower at open

LONDON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen opening lower on
Monday, impacted by weakness overnight on Asian and U.S. equity markets due to
persistent worries about global economic growth.
    Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 to open down by
22 points, or 0.4 percent lower. Germany's DAX was seen opening down by
46-47 points, or 0.5 percent lower, while France's CAC 40 was expected
to fall by 10-13 points, or 0.2-0.3 percent lower.
    Asian shares tumbled on Monday after the U.S. Federal Reserve's decision to
keep interest rates at record lows raised fresh concerns about growth globally,
particularly in China. 
    Greek shares are set to be in focus after the country's leftist prime
minister Alexis Tsipras stormed back into office with an unexpectedly decisive
election victory on Sunday, claiming a clear mandate to steer Greece's battered
economy to recovery. 
    Athens' main ATG equity index is down by around 20 percent since the
start of 2015, hit by Greece's debt and economic problems.    
    Volkswagen could also be in the spotlight after the German
carmaker told U.S. dealers to halt sales of some 2015 diesel cars after
regulators found software it designed for the affected vehicles gave false
emissions data.
