UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Oct 10

    Oct 10 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening down 11
points at 7,155 on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers.
    
    * BHP: One of BHP's biggest shareholders Aberdeen Standard
Investments on Wednesday added to pressure for the world's leading miner to cut
ties with lobby groups it says are at odds with the company's pledges on climate
leadership.
    * INTERNATIONAL CONSOLIDATED AIRLINES: British Airways announced
the launch of a new flight from London's Gatwick Airport to the Turkish resort
of Antalya, once among Thomas Cook's most popular routes, as airlines jostle to
fill the void left by its collapse.
    * LONDON CITY AIRPORT: The airport was braced for disruption on Thursday
after climate-change protesters Extinction Rebellion vowed to occupy its
terminal and shut down operations for three days as part of its action in the
British capital.

offset the carbon dioxide emissions of around 1.5 million road users in Britain
starting later this month under a loyalty scheme.
    * OIL:Oil prices fell on Thursday on concerns of lower fuel demand as talks
this week between the United States and China, the world's two largest oil
users, are not expected to help end the trade war between them, adding to
anxieties about the global economy.  
    * GOLD:Gold prices scaled one-week highs on Thursday, holding ground above
$1,500 an ounce, as investors flocked to the safety of bullion following
contradictory reports about Sino-U.S. trade talks.

Spirax-Sarco and Tesco will trade without entitlement on
Thursday, trimming around 9.5 points off the FTSE 100 index, according to
Reuters calculations.
