UK Stocks-Factors to watch on July 28

    July 28 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening down 36
points at 7406.8 on Friday, according to financial bookmakers.     
    
    * UK CONSUMER MORALE: British consumer morale has sunk back to depths hit
just after last year's Brexit vote and worse may be to come as households' view
of the broader economic situation dropped to a four-year low, according to a
survey on Friday.
    * SHELL: Royal Dutch Shell Plc plans to begin permanently
shuttering the gasoline-producing unit at its 227,586 barrel-per-day (bpd)
Convent, Louisiana, refinery in January 2018, said sources familiar with the
company's plans on Thursday.
    * OIL: Oil prices extended a rally into a sixth day on Friday, hovering near
8-week highs on a decline in U.S. inventories and OPEC's ongoing efforts to curb
production to ease a global glut. Brent crude futures were up 2 cents,
or 0.04 percent, at $51.51 per barrel at 0059 GMT.
    * GOLD: Gold steadied on Friday after retreating from a more than six-week
high hit in the previous session, with investors looking for cues on the health
of the U.S. economy from second-quarter gross domestic product data due later in
the session.
    * COPPER: Copper prices drifted in early Asian trading on Friday with little
movement in currency markets, a key driver over recent sessions. Three-month
copper on the London Metal Exchange was little changed at $6,329 a tonne
by 0134 GMT after trading flat in the previous session.
    * A punishing fall in AstraZeneca's shares after the failure of a key lung
cancer study for the pharma company offset the impact of earnings-led gains for
drinks giant Diageo on Britain's top share index. The bluechip FTSE 100
index fell 0.2 percent on Thursday, in line with the broader European market.
