Australian shares to open marginally lower after weak U.S. job growth

    Sept 9 (Reuters) - Australian shares are set to open
slightly lower on Monday after   weaker-than-expected U.S. jobs
data contained risk sentiment on Wall Street.
    Retail hiring declined for a seventh straight month in
August, but wage growth offered some respite to concerns that
the U.S. economy may be heading towards a recession.             
    The local share price index futures          fell 0.105%, a
16.3-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        .
The benchmark closed 0.5% higher on Friday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         fell 0.3%
in early trade.
