* HSBC: HSBC Holdings HSBA.L plans to add more than a 1,000 jobs this year at its technology development centres in China, as the Asia-focused lender seeks to bolster its presence in the world's second largest economy. GLENCORE: The London Metal Exchange (LME) has dismissed a complaint from miner and commodity trader Glencore GLEN.L over its inability to take fast delivery of aluminium from warehouses owned by ISTIM UK in Port Klang, Malaysia, two sources familiar with the matter said on Monday. SOLGOLD: SolGold SOLG.L is in talks with financiers keen to invest in its Ecuadorian copper-gold prospects and mining major BHP BHPB.L could increase its stake in the company, SolGold's chief executive said on Monday. MYSALE: Mike Ashley's Sports Direct International Plc SPD.L dissolved its stake in online retailer MySale Group Plc MYSL.L , a filing showed on Monday. The UK blue chip index closed 0.5% lower at 7,310.88 points on Monday, as worries over international trade increased on the back of U.S. curbs on China's Huawei, while weak results from Ryanair triggered a sell-off in airlines across the board.
