Europe Factors to Watch-Shares set to fall after Greek vote
PARIS, Jan 26 (Reuters) - European stocks were set to fall at the open on Monday, trimming some of last week's sharp gains, as Greece's Syriza party promised to roll back austerity measures after sweeping to victory in a snap election. Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 to open around 67 points lower, or down 1 percent, Germany's DAX to open 114 points lower, or down 1.1 percent, and France's CAC 40 to open 48 points lower, or 1 down percent. Spain's IBEX was seen opening 196 points lower, or down 1.9 percent and Italy's MIB opening 398 points lower, or down 1.9 percent. Greek leftist leader Alexis Tsipras promised on Sunday that five years of austerity, "humiliation and suffering" imposed by international creditors were over after his party's victory. "Various polls have been predicting a Syriza victory in the Greek election for some time. However, the margin of victory was above expectations and the subsequent coalition with the Independent Greeks may have just complicated matters," Chris Weston, chief market strategist at IG, wrote in a note.
