Oct 14 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index .FTSE is seen opening 20 points higher at 5,990 on Wednesday, according to financial bookmakers.
* NATIONAL GRID: Qatar Petroleum has secured storage and redelivery capacity at the UK's Grain liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal for 25 years from mid-2025, Qatar Petroleum and Britain's National Grid NG.L said in separate statements on Tuesday. GOLD: Gold struggled to gain traction on Wednesday and was stuck below the key $1,900/ounce psychological level, as lack of an agreement on additional U.S. fiscal stimulus helped the dollar stay firm. OIL: Oil prices slipped on Wednesday on concerns that fuel demand will continue to falter as rising coronavirus cases across Europe and in the United States, the world's biggest oil consumer, could impede economic growth. The UK blue-chip index .FTSE closed 0.5% lower on Tuesday, while London's mid-cap index fell from four-month highs on concerns around the timeline of a COVID-19 vaccine as well as uncertainties over a Brexit trade deal with the European Union ahead of a self-imposed UK deadline.
