European Factors to Watch-Shares seen steadying after commodity-led decline

LONDON, Dec 2 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen steadying on Tuesday
after a pullback in the previous session that had been caused by a new slump in
the price of crude oil, which fell to five-year lows.
    Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 to open up by
4-9 points, or 0.1 percent higher. Germany's DAX was expected to open
up by as much as 10 points, or 0.1 percent, and France's CAC 40 was also
expected to open up by 5-9 points, or 0.1-0.2 percent higher.
    Brent crude slipped to nearly $72 a barrel on Tuesday, giving up some of the
gains seen on Monday when prices rallied for the first time in six sessions, but
Europe's stock markets were expected to be lifted by gains overnight in Asia.
