UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Sept. 25

    Sept 25 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening down 17
points at 7,274 on Wednesday, according to financial bookmakers.
    
    * THOMAS COOK: Germany will guarantee a 380 million euro bridging loan for
Condor, the German airline owned by insolvent British travel operator Thomas
Cook, to enable it to continue flying and save jobs, the economy
minister said on Tuesday.    
    * IP GROUP: Embattled fund manager Neil Woodford is set to sell his entire
stake in British intellectual property company IP Group in an
accelerated book build, the bookrunner said on Tuesday.    
    * FINANCIAL ADVISERS: Britain's markets watchdog threatened on Tuesday to
close "every single advisory firm" that continues to wrongly tell people to cash
in their defined benefit pensions.    
    * OIL: Oil prices fell for a second day on Wednesday on worries about
falling fuel demand after U.S. President Donald Trump's comments doused optimism
over U.S.-China trade talks and reignited concerns on global economic growth.
   
    * GOLD: Gold prices inched lower on Wednesday as some investors booked
profit, but the metal remained supported below a three-week peak hit in the
prior session as the launch of a formal impeachment inquiry into President
Donald Trump stoked political worries.

Supreme Court ruled that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's decision to shut
down parliament in the run-up to Brexit was unlawful.
