    Feb 14 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening down 3.9
points on Tuesday according to financial spreadbetters.

at 7,278.92 points after hitting an intra-day high of 7,298.47, the highest

first-quarter, although its German TUIFly unit was hit by costs of around 22

was announced in October. TUI agreed to sell its specialist holiday arm
Travelopia to KKR at an enterprise value of 325 million pounds ($407
    * LLOYDS: Lloyds Banking Group is close to selecting Berlin as its

the European Union when Britain leaves the bloc, according to sources familiar
with the plans.
    * GLENCORE: Glencore has increased its hold on Democratic Republic
of Congo's copper and cobalt resources by buying the remaining stake in the
Mutanda mine from resource group Fleurette and increasing its share in Katanga
for a total of $960 million.
    * GOLD: Gold prices edged up on Tuesday as the dollar crept lower, with
investors turning their attention to testimony from U.S. Federal Reserve Chair
Janet Yellen later in the day for hints on the central bank's interest rate
    * COPPER: Copper held on to hefty overnight gains on Tuesday amid supply
concerns from two of the world's biggest sources of the metal.
