Australia shares set to advance at open; NZ up

    July 10 (Reuters) - Australian shares are poised to open
higher on Wednesday, as energy and mining stocks are seen
gaining from a rise in oil prices, due to Middle East tensions
and supply cuts, and higher iron ore prices stemming from strong
demand outlook.    
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.546%, a
33.7-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close. The benchmark slipped 0.1% to 6,665.7 on Tuesday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose 0.2%
in early trade.
