LONDON, Oct 20 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen opening flat on

1-2 points, or flat in percentage terms. Germany's DAX was seen opening
down by 4-7 points, flat to down by 0.1 percent, while France's CAC was
also seen down by 1-2 points, again flat in percentage terms.
    On the macroeconomic front, German producer prices data and euro zone
current account data is due out later in the day, along with some U.S.
