Australia shares to edge lower; NZ down

    May 29 (Reuters) - Australian shares were poised to slide
marginally on Tuesday, as energy stocks appeared likely to take
a beating from sinking oil prices, while investors may take
comfort from a slight recovery in iron-ore futures.
    The local share price index futures          fell 0.2
percent, a 14-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index
        close. The benchmark shed half a percent on Monday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         edged 0.2
percent lower to 8,630.44 in early trade.
