UK Stocks-Factors to watch on June 18

    June 18 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 12
points higher at 7,369 on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers. 
    
    * BP: A BP drilling rig heading to an oilfield in the British North
Sea has been forced to turn away twice over the past two days as a Greenpeace
vessel protesting climate change tries to hamper its progress.
    * GOLD: Gold prices edged higher on Tuesday as the dollar pulled back from
multi-week highs ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve's two-day monetary policy
meeting.
    * OIL: Oil prices were falling for a second day on Tuesday, after more signs
that global economic growth is being hit by U.S.-China trade tensions, although
losses were limited amid tensions in the Middle East after tanker attacks last
week.
    * The UK blue chip index closed 0.2% higher on Monday as rises in banking
shares outweighed the impact of a profit alert from Germany's Lufthansa on
airlines, while UK contractor Kier Group skidded to an all-time low.
