UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Nov 25

    Nov 25 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 24
points higher at 7,351 on Monday, according to financial bookmakers.
    
    * BP/GLENCORE: Russian oil producer Surgutneftegaz has sold four
740,000-barrel cargoes of ESPO blend crude ESPO-DUB for loading in the second
half of January at lower premiums via two spot tenders last week, trade sources
said. The buyers were likely BP, Glencore, and ChinaOil.

    * BREXIT: Prime Minister Boris Johnson, facing a Dec. 12 election, promised
23.5 billion pounds ($30.15 billion) of "sensible" tax cuts and extra day-to-day
spending which he sought to contrast with the opposition Labour Party's much
more radical plans.
    * WOODFORD: Market watchdogs in the European Union will launch coordinated
checks next year on whether asset managers are flouting liquidity rules after
the shuttered Woodford fund in Britain has raised questions, a top EU regulator
said on Friday.
    * Oil prices began the week on a brighter note, posting early gains as
positive noises from Washington over the weekend rekindled optimism in global
markets that the United States and China could soon sign a deal to end their
bitter trade war.
    * GOLD: Gold prices edged down to a one-week low after the United States and
China expressed willingness to sign an initial trade deal by the year-end,
lifting demand for riskier assets and boosting the dollar.
    * The UK blue chip index surged more than 1% on Friday after two
days of selling, as investors turned cautiously optimistic about a Sino-U.S.
trade deal and exporter stocks rose after the pound weakened on downbeat U.K.
Purchasing Managers' Indexes (PMI) data.
