LONDON, March 2 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen opening higher on Wednesday, tracking gains on Asian and U.S. markets.

Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 to open up by 42-50 points, or 0.7-0.8 percent higher. Germany's DAX was seen up by 75-94 points, or 0.8-1 percent higher, while France's CAC was seen up by 36-44 points, or 0.8-1 percent higher.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index rose 1.5 percent to reach a one-month high on Tuesday, although the index is still down by around 8 percent since the start of 2016.



Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is not in tie-up talks with anyone at present, and a potential partner would need to have the same multi-brand strategy as FCA for a merger to work, Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne said on Tuesday.
