Australia shares to climb for a fifth day, NZ up slightly

Dec 12 (Reuters) - Australian shares are seen gaining for a
fifth straight session on Monday, taking a lead from U.S.
equities markets as the rally triggered by Donald Trump's
election as U.S. President refuses to wane.
    Local share price futures added 0.4 percent, or 23 points,
over the weekend to reach 5,582, a 21.4-point premium to the
underlying S&P/ASX 200 index. The benchmark index rose
2.13 percent last week.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index was up 0.1
percent, or 9.42 points, at 6,902.72 at 2108 GMT.
