UK Stocks-Factors to watch on March 6

    March 6 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening up 34
points on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers. 
    * BREXIT-FINANCIALS: British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday that
she wanted financial services to be part of a deal on the country's new
relationship with the European Union after Brexit, echoing comments she made in
a speech last week.
    * OIL: Oil prices rose on Tuesday for a third straight session, underpinned
by robust demand forecasts and as ministers from OPEC touted the strength of its
agreement with global producers to cut output in order to bolster the market. 

    * GOLD: Gold prices edged up on Tuesday on a softer dollar and as investors
covered short positions amid jitters about a global trade war due to U.S.
President Donald Trump's plan to impose steel and aluminum tariffs.
    * The UK blue chip index closed 0.7 percent higher at 7,103.30 points on
Monday, helped by gains among mining companies and commodity stocks which had
