UK Stocks-Factors to watch on April 3

    April 3 - Britain's FTSE 100 is seen opening 5 points higher at
7,396 on Wednesday, according to financial bookmakers.
    * RECKITT BENCKISER: Reckitt Benckiser's Chief Executive Rakesh
Kapoor received a 69 percent pay rise last year, following an improvement in the
company's performance after three tough years.
    * SUPERDRY: Superdry named its co-founder and former boss Julian
Dunkerton as interim chief executive officer on Tuesday after a majority of the
British fashion group's board stepped down.
    * GOLD: Gold prices were steady on Wednesday as a weaker dollar offset
pressure on the metal, which recovered from a four-week low in the previous
session, while a rally in equities to multi-month highs capped bullion's
safe-haven demand.
    * OIL: Oil prices rose for a fourth day on Wednesday, holding firm despite
an industry report showing that U.S. inventories rose unexpectedly last week,
with supply cuts and sanctions supporting the market.
    * The UK blue-chip index closed 1.01 percent higher at 7391.12 on Tuesday as
exporter stocks benefited from a weakening pound on rising fears of a no-deal
exit as parliament rejected all Brexit alternatives again.
