    Nov 15 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 28
points lower at 7,006 on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers. 
    
    * VODAFONE: Vodafone may replicate elements of its British mobile
towers joint venture in other markets but not necessarily to the extent of
sharing radio equipment in major cities, its chief executive said on Wednesday.

    * GOLD: Gold prices held steady on Thursday, after rising nearly a percent
in the previous session, as the dollar retreated further from a 16-month peak
against a basket of currencies.
    * OIL: Oil prices slipped on Thursday, weighed down by rising supply going
into a market in which consumption is expected to slow down amid a glum economic
outlook.
    * EX-DIVS: Bunzl, Glaxosmithkline, Marks and Spencer
, Royal Dutch Shell, J Sainsbury and Scott Mortgage
Investment Trust will trade without entitlement to their latest dividend
pay-out on Thursday, trimming 16.2 points off the FTSE 100 according to Reuters
calculations. 
    * The UK blue chip index ended 0.3 percent lower on Wednesday as mining
shares and oil majors sold off amid growing anxiety that global growth was
slowing, though a late rally in gambling stocks offset some of the slide.
