0636 GMT - The FTSE 100 Index looks set to open 30 points lower at 7139, according to IG futures data, after downbeat trading in Asia and a lower close on Wall Street. Markets in Australia, mainland China, Japan and South Korea drop. The Dow fell 0.8% Thursday. Brent crude retreats 0.4% to $108.63 a barrel. "In the euro area, the market highlight Friday will be Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices figures for June," Danske Bank analysts say in a note.
