Australia shares set to gain modestly amid lingering trade war worries

    Dec 2 (Reuters) - Australian shares are set to open slightly
higher on Monday as investors remain cautious amid worries about
the China-U.S. trade dispute and ahead of a slew of domestic
data this week including Tuesday's monetary policy decision.
    The local share price index futures          rose about
0.1%, a 15-point premium to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index
        close. The benchmark had risen a tad over 2% last week
in its biggest weekly gain since early February.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         fell 0.01%
by 2119 GMT.
