bookmakers. For more on the factors affecting European stocks, please click on
    * The UK blue chip index closed 0.3 percent higher at 6,146.32 on Wednesday,
lifted by insurer Prudential after it announced a special dividend with
results that beat expectations. 
    * EUROPEAN MONETARY POLICY: The European Central Bank is set to unveil its
second stimulus cocktail in three months on Thursday, spurred by fears that low
energy costs are feeding into wages and prices, potentially perpetuating
ultra-low inflation. 
    * BRITISH PROPERTY: British property prices kept up a rapid pace of growth
in February, but increases are likely to slow in the months to come as higher
taxes on landlords take effect, property valuers said on Thursday. 
    * EX-DIVS: Barclays, BHP Billiton, CRH, Direct Line
, Land Securities and Shire will trade without
