UK Stocks-Factors to watch on April 24

    April 24 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 20
points lower at 7,503 on Wednesday, according to financial bookmakers.
    
    * OIL: Oil prices fell on Wednesday amid signs that global markets remain
adequately supplied despite a jump to 2019 highs this week on Washington's push
for tighter sanctions against Iran.
    * GOLD: Gold prices fell on Wednesday to hover around a four-month low
touched in the previous session, as share markets rose and the dollar gained
after strong U.S. housing data dampened concerns about an economic slowdown in
the country.    
    * The UK blue chip index sprang to a near seven-month high on Tuesday as oil
majors leapt on the back of tighter U.S. sanctions on Iran and exporters
benefited from a weaker pound as Brexit jitters returned.
