LONDON, Oct 8 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen steadying on Thursday
after a four-day winning run. 
    Financial spreadbetters gave a range for Britain's FTSE 100 from
opening down by 2 points to opening up by 9 points, or flat to 0.1 percent
higher. Germany's DAX was seen opening flat to up by 10 points, or 0.1
percent higher, while France's CAC 40 was seen up by 4-11 points, or
0.1-0.2 percent higher.
    Chinese stocks surged on Thursday after a week-long break as they tried
catching up to a global rally, while most regional markets stepped back with
Japanese equities hitting the skids on weak data. 
    The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index closed up 0.1 percent on
Wednesday to record its fourth straight session of gains.
