Australian shares seen inching up; NZ rising

    April 4 (Reuters) - Australian shares are expected to tick
higher on Wednesday, tracking overnight strength on Wall Street,

base metal prices.
    The local share price index futures          rose 19 points
to 5,740 points, a 12-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX
200 index         close. The benchmark fell 0.1 percent on
Tuesday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose 0.4
