UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Nov 5

    Nov 5 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening up 17
points higher at 7,387 on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers.
    
    * ENERGY FIRMS: Drax, Equinor and National Grid
announced plans to develop the world's first net zero emissions industrial zone
in the north east of England by 2040, a move they said could help Britain meet
its climate targets. 
    * COPPER: Prices rose after copper producer Antofagasta cut its
output forecast from Chile due to nationwide protests in the world's biggest
copper producer. 
    * GOLD: Prices edged down as hopes of a Sino-U.S. trade pact boosted the
dollar and spurred appetite for riskier assets, blunting investors' interest in
holding the non-yielding bullion.
    * The UK blue chip index surged nearly 1% to a more than one-month high on
Monday as heavyweight banks, miners and oil stocks were driven higher by hopes
of a trade deal between the U.S. and China.
