    May 30 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 2 points
higher at 7,188 on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers. 
    
    * GOLD: Gold prices inched down on Thursday as bonds rallied and the dollar
hovered near a two-year high, negating the support from an increasingly bitter
Sino-U.S. trade dispute that rekindled doubts about global economic growth.

    * OIL: Oil prices rose on Thursday after an industry report showed a decline
in U.S. crude inventories that exceeded analyst expectations. 
    * EX-DIVS: Marks and Spencer, National Grid, Sage Group
 and Whitbread will trade without entitlement to their latest
dividend pay-out on Thursday, trimming 5.38 points off the FTSE 100 according to
Reuters calculations 
    * The UK blue chip index gave up 1.2% wobbled lower on Wednesday as signs of
