    March 15 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 is seen opening 15 points
higher at 7,200 on Friday, according to financial bookmakers.
    * Lloyds: A long-awaited probe into what Lloyds Banking Group
executives knew about one of Britain's worst-ever banking frauds is now not
likely to be completed until next year, a source with knowledge of the review
said.

Martin stood at 3 million pounds ($4 million) in 2018, according to the
firm's annual report.

million) loan offer from dissident shareholder Sports Direct, it said on
Thursday while indicating that Mike Ashley's latest push for control of the
struggling British department store group is unlikely to fly.
    * GOLD: Gold prices edged down on Friday after slipping below the key $1,300
level in the previous session, pressured by improving appetite for risk as
British lawmakers voted to seek a delay to the country's exit from the European

as U.S. sanctions against Venezuela and Iran likely created a slight deficit in
global supply in the first quarter of 2019.
    * The UK blue chip index closed 0.37 percent higher at 7185.43 on Thursday
as financials cheered British lawmakers' rejection of a disruptive no-deal
