LONDON Dec 15 (Reuters) - European equity futures rose on Tuesday, pointing to a stabilisation for the region's stock markets after a slump in the previous session which saw European shares fall to their lowest level in two-and-a-half months.

Futures for the Euro STOXX 50, Germany's DAX, France's CAC and Britain's FTSE all rose by between 1-1.2 percent.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index fell 1.8 percent on Monday to its lowest level since early October, as a slump in oil prices weighed on equity markets.

Asian stock markets steadied on Tuesday, although gains were limited by investors' caution before a widely anticipated U.S. interest rate increase by the U.S. Federal Reserve.
