PARIS, March 16 (Reuters) - European stocks were set to rise on Monday,
shrugging off a dip on Wall Street on Friday and extending their recent sharp
rally, as investors bet that a renewed drop in the euro would boost the region's
economy and lift exporter earnings.
    Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 to open 26
points higher, or up 0.4 percent, Germany's DAX to open 61 to 63 points
higher, or up 0.5 percent, and France's CAC 40 to open 15 to 20 points
higher, or up 0.4 percent.
    The euro fell as low as $1.0457 early in Asia, its lowest since
January 2003, after a brief bounce above $1.0600 overnight. It last traded at
$1.0524.
