UK Stocks-Factors to watch on April 30

    April 30 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening up 4
points higher at 7,445 on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers. 
    
    * STANDARD CHARTERED: Standard Chartered posted on Tuesday a 10
percent rise in its first-quarter profit, helped by a surge in corporate banking
income and a drop in expenses, and announced an up to $1 billion share buyback
program.
    * OIL: Oil prices dipped on Tuesday on expectations rising output from the
United States and producer club OPEC would offset most of the shortfall expected
from U.S. sanctions on Iran, but analysts said markets remained tight.

    * GOLD: Gold edged up on Tuesday as Asian shares fell ahead of the release
of a raft of economic data and the U.S. Federal Reserve's two-day meeting which
will decide the trajectory of interest rates.
    * The UK blue chip index closed up by 0.2 percent on Monday as strong
economic data from the United States and China boosted investor confidence,
while travel companies benefited from rising demand for holidays beyond the
European Union.
