Morning call: Europe seen lower as Fed weighs on Midterm rally (0634 GMT)

European shares are expected to open in the red and follow the trend set on Wall Street overnight after a statement from the Fed weighed further on to sap the rally which followed the midterm elections.

The central bank noted a dip in business investment but the statement otherwise suggested the next rate hike would be in December, disappointing those who had hoped for a change in tone after October's market sell-off.

With Asia also in the red, financial spreadbetters at IG expect London's FTSE to open 33 points lower, Frankfurt's DAX to lose 19 points and Paris' CAC 40 5 points down.
