UK Stocks-Factors to watch on April 28



April 28 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index .FTSE is seen opening higher on Thursday, with futures FFIc1 up 0.31%.

* STANCHART: Standard Chartered's STAN.L first-quarter pre-tax profit rose 6%, beating market expectations, as the emerging markets-focused lender benefited from rising interest rates and flagged a robust outlook.

* SHELL: Shell SHEL.L tightened its restrictions on buying Russian oil, saying it would no longer accept refined products with any Russian content, including blended fuels.

* CHANNEL 4: Britain's government said it will set out plans to sell Channel 4, the publicly owned but commercially funded broadcaster established in the 1980s, in a policy paper.

* GFG ALLIANCE-SFO: Teams of investigators have visited the British addresses of Indian-British steel magnate Sanjeev Gupta's GFG Alliance, demanding documents such as balance sheets, annual reports and other correspondence, the UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) said.

* METALS: Copper prices edged higher on hopes that China will step up its metal-intensive infrastructure construction to counter the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns, although a stronger dollar limited gains.

* GOLD: Gold prices weakened to a two-month low as an elevated dollar hurt demand for greenback-priced bullion, while an impending U.S. interest rate hike also dampened the metal's appeal as an inflation hedge.

* OIL: Oil prices edged lower in early Asian trade as concerns about rising coronavirus cases in China, the world's biggest oil importer, weighed on futures markets.

* FTSE 100: London's FTSE 100 edged up on Wednesday, driven by gains in miners and strong corporate updates, although a fall in cyclical stocks and industrial software company Aveva Group capped its rise.
