European stocks are seen opening mixed on Friday,

ahead of a batch of U.S. data that should shed light on the outlook for the U.S.

Federal Reserve's stimulus programme.

    Financial spreadbetters expect Britain's FTSE 100 to open around 1

point, or 0.02 percent, lower, Germany's DAX to open 5 points, or 0.06

percent, higher and France's CAC 40 to open up 5 points, or 0.13

percent.

    European stocks inched higher on Thursday, as downbeat U.S. economic data

including lower-than-expected GDP growth, a rise in new jobless benefits claims

and tepid pending home sales reassured investors that the Fed would not scale

back its bond buying soon.

    Investors await the Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan's May consumer

sentiment index due at 1355 GMT, personal income and consumption data due at

1230 GMT, and the Chicago PMI due at 1345 GMT.
