Australia shares to open higher; NZ up

    March 5 (Reuters) - Australian shares are poised to snap a
run of three sessions of declines and edge higher on Monday,
mirroring Wall Street which closed on an upbeat note in the last
session, and also driven by a jump in commodity and oil prices.
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.2
percent, or 12 points, to 5,924, a 4.9-point discount to the
underlying S&P/ASX 200 index         close. The benchmark lost
0.7 percent on Friday. 
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         inched up
0.1 percent in early trade.
