UK Stocks-Factors to watch on July 31

    July 31 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening up 3
points at 7271.3 on Monday, according to financial spreadbetters.
            
    * RYANAIR/ EASYJET/ WIZZ AIR: A transatlantic alliance between three global
airlines will shore up their position in the lucrative UK-U.S. market, shielding
them from low-cost rivals and the uncertainties of Britain's exit from the
European Union.
    * BAT: British American Tobacco said on Friday it was not surprised
by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's announcement that it plans to reduce
nicotine levels in cigarettes.
    * HSBC: A U.S. judge on Friday said investors may pursue part of their
nationwide antitrust lawsuit accusing 12 of the world's biggest banks of
conspiring to rig the $275 trillion market for interest rate swaps.
    * BT: British telecoms provider BT has offered to invest up to 600
million pounds ($778 million) to provide faster broadband services to remote
parts of the country, Britain's government said on Sunday.
    * SHELL: Loadings of oil products from Royal Dutch Shell's 404,000
barrels per day Pernis refinery in the Netherlands have been suspended following
a fire at the plant, the company said in a statement to traders on Sunday. 

    * OIL: Oil prices hit a two-month high on Monday, lifted by a tightening
U.S. crude market and the threat of sanctions against OPEC-member Venezuela.
Brent crude futures were at $52.82 per barrel at 0443 GMT on Monday, up
30 cents or 0.6 percent. Prices hit $52.90 per barrel earlier in the day, their
highest since May 25.
    * COPPER: London copper rallied to within a whisker of its highest
in more than two years on Monday after manufacturing data from top user China
confirmed growth tempered slightly but stayed firm in July.
    
    * Britain's major share index posted its first weekly loss since June on
Friday after a late-session slump in tobacco stocks, falls among banking stocks
and a disappointing update from telecoms firm BT. The FTSE 100
ended the session 1 percent lower at 7,368.37 points, in line with a broader
decline in the European market.
