Australian shares set to open higher; NZ tepid

    Aug 1 (Reuters) - Australian shares are set to open higher
on Wednesday, following a firmer finish on Wall Street, with
mining stocks expected to underpin the bullish sentiment on
higher commodities prices.  
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.31
percent or 19 points to 6,237, a 43.2-point discount to the
underlying S&P/ASX 200 index         close. The benchmark gained
1.8 points on Tuesday.
    Meanwhile, New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index        
was largely unchanged in early trade.
