    * The UK blue chip index closed 17.03 points lower on Monday at 6,182.40
points, as a broad-based drop outweighed a surge in insurance company Old Mutual
Plc and mining stocks. 
    * BHP BILLITON: BHP Billiton on Tuesday warned of a continued
oversupply in global iron ore markets in coming years that would keep up
pressure on smaller suppliers to the global sea-traded market. 
    * RIO TINTO: Rio Tinto on Tuesday said new iron ore supply hitting
the market in 2016 will fall by nearly a third to 75 million tonnes versus last
year.

luxury fashion brand Burberry Plc, the Financial Times reported. (bit.ly/1M3cuMY)
    * BRITISH BANKS: A Bank of England policymaker said on Monday that Britain's
banks would not need much more capital to comply with its solvency rules, as the
central bank tries to quell talk that another major increase in capital
requirements is on the way. 
    * UK WAGES: Starting salaries for newly recruited permanent staff in Britain
rose in February at the fastest rate in three months, but pay growth for
temporary workers was the weakest in nearly three years, a survey of recruiters
showed on Tuesday. 
    * UK CONSUMER SPENDING: British shoppers were a bit more reluctant to part
with their cash in February than in January, a survey showed, adding to signs of
a slowdown in the economy at the start of 2016. 
    * OIL PRICES: Brent crude oil prices remained over $40 a barrel in early
trade on Tuesday, after jumping to a 2016-high the previous session as more
producers announced talks to support the market and investors opened new bets on
further price rises.
