UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Nov 19

    Nov 19 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 6 points
higher at 7,314 on Tuesday.

    * FIRSTGROUP: Two major FirstGroup shareholders on Monday called for
the British bus and train operator to sell its U.S. assets as part of a
portfolio overhaul which already includes the planned sale of North American
intercity bus service Greyhound.
    * TATA STEEL: Tata Steel plans to cut up to 3,000 jobs across its
European operations, the company said on Monday, as the sector wrestles with
excess supply, weak demand and high costs.   
    * OIL: U.S. oil prices fell for the second straight day on Tuesday amid
market jitters over limited progress between China and the United States on
rolling back trade tariffs, exacerbated by a rise in U.S. inventories.

    * GOLD: Gold inched up to its highest in more than 1-1/2 weeks on Tuesday,
as fresh doubts about a trade deal between the United States and China dented
appetite for riskier assets. 
    * The UK blue chip index added 0.1%, while FTSE 250 index rose 0.2%
on Monday at their highest level in nearly 14 months, boosted by polls pointing
to victory by the ruling Conservatives in upcoming elections, while a near 5%
drop in insurer Aviva weighed on the main board.
