Indian shares to open lower on weak Asian, U.S. cues

 MUMBAI, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Indian shares are set to start
lower on Monday, tracking weak Asian peers after renewed fears
of recession in the United States and sustained worries about
the euro zone debt crisis prompted investors to sell riskier
 L&T Finance Holdings , a unit of engineering
conglomerate Larsen & Toubro , will be watched after a
source told Reuters the firm plans to raise at least 1 billion
rupees via two-year bonds at 9.96 percent. 	
 At 0251 GMT, the MSCI's measure of Asian markets other than
Japan was down 2.35 percent, while Japan's
Nikkei dropped 1.71 percent and South Korea's Kospi
 shed 3 percent.  	
 The Nifty India stock futures in Singapore SINc1 were down
1.61 percent, indicating a lower opening for the Indian market. 	
 U.S. stocks fell 2 percent on Friday after data showing zero
jobs growth in August brought investors face-to-face with the
prospect of another recession. The euro slipped to a three-week
low against the dollar on Monday. 	
 The main Indian stock index rose 0.9 percent on
Friday, snapping five straight weeks of fall, to their highest
close in more than two weeks.
