UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Nov. 26

    Nov 26 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 25
points higher at 6,977 on Monday, according to financial bookmakers.  
    * OIL: Oil prices recovered some losses on Monday after a near 8 percent
drop in the previous session, but remained under pressure with Brent crude below
$60 per barrel amid weak fundamentals and struggling financial markets.

    * GOLD: Gold prices were little changed with investors looking to a G20
meeting this week for signs of a thaw in the Sino-U.S. trade conflict, although
a stronger dollar amid fears of a slowdown in global growth weighed on bullion.

    * DRAX: Britain's Drax Group Plc has started a pilot project to
capture and store carbon dioxide emissions at its biomass plant, the first of
its kind in Europe, it said on Monday.
    * ASTON MARTIN: Luxury carmaker Aston Martin has not yet seen a
slowdown in its key markets and aims to more than double the number of cars it
makes by 2025, its chief executive officer said on Sunday.
    * The UK blue chip index closed 7.46 points lower at 6952.86 on
Friday, as a deepening oil rout brought a tentative rally earlier in the day to
a halt and investors moved to the sidelines before a key EU summit on Sunday.
