UK Stocks-Factors to watch on March 6

    March 6 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 is seen opening 17 points
lower at 7,166 on Wednesday, according to financial bookmakers.
    
    * LLOYD: Insurance market Lloyd's of London            said on Tuesday its
Brussels subsidiary had gained authorisation in Monaco to continue underwriting
and reinsurance business after Brexit.
    * INTERSERVE: Interserve said on Tuesday it had rejected a rescue
plan put forward by its largest shareholder Coltrane Asset Management because it
believed the proposal risked the future of the outsourcer in its fight for
survival.
    * DEBENHAMS: Debenhams warned on profit again on Tuesday, as the
British department store group edged nearer to a restructuring that analysts
expect will include a share issue and an acceleration of its store closure
plans.
    * GOLD: Gold prices steadied on Wednesday, after recovering from a more than
five-week low in the previous session, lifted by a pause in global equities
rally, while a firm dollar curbed further gains.
    * OIL: Oil prices fell nearly 1 percent on Wednesday as bullish output
forecasts by two big U.S. producers and a build in U.S. crude stockpiles
outweighed ongoing OPEC-led efforts to rein in crude production.  
    * The UK blue chip index closed 0.69 percent up at 7183.43 on Tuesday as
Ladbrokes owner GVC surged on strong results and a weaker pound paved the way
for gains in dollar earners, while Intertek tumbled as investors rushed to book
profits after an in-line earnings report.
