Nov 7 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening 4 points lower at 7,393 on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers.

* BHP: BHP Group's BHP.AX BHPB.L Australian shareholders voted against a resolution to axe the global miner's membership of industry groups that advocate for coal, backing the board's call and echoing the stance taken by BHP investors in London, a preliminary tally showed on Thursday. BT/VODAFONE: Britain's Virgin Media is ditching BT's BT.L mobile network for rival Vodafone VOD.L from late 2021 in a five-year deal that will allow it to launch new services such as 5G to its more than 3 million customers.

SSE: SSE Renewables SSE.L has been given consent by the Scottish government to extend its Gordonbush onshore wind farm in Sutherland, it said on Wednesday. BOE RATES: Britain's central bank looks set to sit out the global shift towards lower interest rates on Thursday, though investors will watch for any policymaker who might break ranks and vote to give the country's slowing economy more help. GOLD: Gold prices were little changed on Thursday as investors maintained a cautious stance amid signs of a delay in Washington and Beijing sealing a long-awaited interim trade deal. OIL: Oil prices trod water on Thursday after losses in the previous session, as traders were cautious amid concerns over a potential delay in sealing a long-awaited interim U.S.-China trade deal and a huge increase of U.S. crude stockpiles. EX-DIVS: BP BP.L and Whitbread WTB.L will trade without entitlement to its latest dividend pay-out on Thursday, trimming 6.5 points off the FTSE 100 according to Reuters calculations.
