UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Nov 13

Nov 13 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening 26 points lower at 7,340 on Wednesday, according to financial bookmakers.

* NATIONAL GRID: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday gave UK energy company National Grid Plc NG.L 14 days to explain why the state should not revoke the utility's certificate to operate its gas franchise in downstate New York, saying that it had failed to provide "adequate and reliable service." GOLD: Gold prices were little changed on Wednesday after U.S. President Donald Trump dashed investors' hopes for a positive sign on a U.S.-China trade deal with a speech that gave away little, while a firmer dollar limited upside for bullion. OIL: Oil prices dipped on Wednesday as prospects for a trade deal between the United States and China dimmed, weighing on the outlook for the global economy and energy demand. The UK blue chip index closed up 0.5% on Tuesday as renewed hopes of a U.S.-China trade resolution and a more than 3% rise in shares of telecom giant Vodafone (LON: VOD ) helped it bounce back.
