UK Stocks-Factors to watch on March 10

    March 10 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 138
points higher on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers. 
    * WALL STREET: Wall Street suffered its biggest one-day loss since the 2008
financial crisis on Monday and recession worries loomed large as tumbling oil
prices and ongoing coronavirus fears prompted investor panic on the anniversary
of the U.S. stock market's longest-ever bull run.
    * KKR: Private equity firm KKR & Co Inc said late on Monday an
employee in its London office had tested positive for coronavirus, and that it
would temporarily close both its London offices to have them sanitized.

    * BHP GROUP: BHP Group, is in good shape to take action
should supply chain disruption caused by the global coronavirus epidemic trigger
acquisition opportunities, the global miner's Chairman Ken MacKenzie said on
Tuesday.
    * NMC HEALTH: GKSD Investment Holding on Monday pulled out of preliminary
stages of considering an offer for NMC Health, days after the UAE-based
hospital operator was relegated from London's bluechip index.

    * PLAYTECH: Gambling software maker Playtech said on Monday its
Snaitech betting units in Italy will remain closed until April 3, as per the
government's decree on all betting shops, arcades and bingo halls to halt the
coronavirus spread.
    * OIL: Oil prices bounced back 7% on Tuesday from the biggest one-day rout
in nearly 30 years, as investors eyed the possibility of economic stimulus
despite a price war between top producers Saudi Arabia and Russia.
    * GOLD: Gold prices fell 1% on Tuesday, retreating from the last session's
jump above the key $1,700 level, as hopes for global stimulus measures to
cushion the economic impact of the coronavirus outbreak lifted riskier assets
and the dollar.
    * London's FTSE 100 plunged to an almost four-year low on Monday as
a crash in oil prices driven by a price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia
stoked global recession fears, with investors alarmed about the economic fallout
of the coronavirus outbreak.
