UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Oct. 22

    Oct 22 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 5 points
higher at 7,168 on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers.
    * SPORTS DIRECT/GOALS SOCCER CENTRES: Mike Ashley-led retail group Sports
Direct dropped its bid to take over Goals Soccer Centres, citing
insufficient cooperation from the troubled football pitch operator's board.

    * GOLD: Gold was largely muted on Tuesday, weighed down by buoyant Asian
shares that cheered progress in trade talks between the United States and China,
but found support from a lack of clarity in the negotiation details.

    * OIL: Oil prices were little changed on Tuesday as lingering worries over a
global economic slowdown that could hurt oil demand offset some signs of
progress in U.S.-China trade talks.
    * The UK blue chip index closed 0.2% higher on Monday.
