Australia shares expected to rise; NZ rebounds

    Dec 7 (Reuters) - Australian shares are seen edging higher
at open on Thursday before the release of October trade balance
data later in the session.
    A Reuters poll sees it posting a surplus of A$1.38 billion
in October.
    Energy stocks, however, may face some pressure due to
weakness in oil.      
    The local share price index futures          was up 0.27
percent, or 16 points at 5,967, a 21.3-point premium to the
underlying S&P/ASX 200 index         close. The benchmark ended
Wednesday down 0.4 percent.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         was up 0.2
percent, or 14.67 points, to 8,145.53 at 2106 GMT after posting
three straight losing sessions.
