UK Stocks-Factors to watch on July 8

    July 8 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 7 points
lower at 7,546 on Monday, according to financial bookmakers. 
    * BREXIT: British companies are more worried about Brexit than at any time
since the 2016 referendum decision to leave the European Union and they plan to
reduce investment and hiring, a survey of chief financial officers showed on
Monday.
    * OIL: Crude prices were little changed on Monday as traders weighed
geopolitical risks against the impact of the Sino-U.S. trade war on the global
economy, although last week's better-than-expected U.S. jobs data offered some
support.
    * GOLD: Gold prices inched lower on Monday following a steep fall in the
previous session, as robust U.S. jobs report dashed hopes of an aggressive
interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve later this month.
    * The UK blue chip index closed 0.7% lower on Friday, as
stronger-than-expected U.S. employment data tempered hopes of an aggressive
interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve and as heavyweight miners fell due to
weakness in China's iron ore futures.
