UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Nov 20

    Nov 20 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 14
points lower at 7,310 on Wednesday, according to financial bookmakers.
    
    * ASTON MARTIN: Aston Martin, which has seen its share price plunge this
year as sales failed to meet expectations after a stock market flotation,
launched its first sport utility vehicle on Wednesday, hoping for a turnaround
in fortunes.
    * VODAFONE: Vodafone has secured a seven-year technology partnership
with Ryanair RYA.I to handle services including online booking, passenger
boarding and in-flight transactions for the Irish airline in Europe. 

    * IAG: A former British Airways executive who oversaw the carrier's
operations at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport has been indicted
for accepting bribes to help a ground handling company win contracts, New York's
attorney general said on Tuesday.
    * SHELL: Royal Dutch Shell Plc completed a planned seven-week
multi-unit overhaul at its 340,000 barrel-per-day (bpd), joint-venture Deer
Park, Texas, refinery on Monday, said sources familiar with plant operations on
Tuesday. 
    * OIL: Oil prices were steady on Wednesday, after falling the past two days,
as a surge in U.S. stockpiles reinforced concerns about lacklustre global
economic growth amid the trade war between the United States and China, the
world's two biggest oil consumers.
    * GOLD: Gold inched up on Wednesday after U.S. President Donald Trump
threatened to raise tariffs on Chinese imports if no deal is reached with
Beijing and as the U.S. Senate passed a bill backing human rights in Hong Kong. 

    * The UK blue chip index closed up 0.2% and shed most of its earlier gains

surge in safety equipment maker Halma and hopes of more stimulus from economic
powerhouse China.
