LONDON, Oct 14 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen opening lower on
Wednesday, tracking losses in Asian markets after consumer inflation in China
eased more than expected and heightened concerns about deflationary pressures in
the world's second-largest economy. 
    Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 to open down by
54-62 points, or 0.9-1.0 percent lower. Germany's DAX was seen opening
down by 40-66 points, or 0.4-0.7 percent lower, while France's CAC 40 
was seen down by 37 points, or 0.8 percent lower.
    Data on Wednesday showed that consumer inflation in China eased more than
expected in September while producer prices fell for the 43rd straight month.
