Australia shares set for soft start, but miners to support; NZ inches down

    March 15 (Reuters) - Australian shares are poised to edge
lower on Thursday following unsettling leads from Wall Street
over worries of a trade war, but miners will likely find support
on the back of solid metal prices.                        
    The local share price index futures          fell 0.1
percent or 5 points to 5,934, a 1.3-point discount to the
underlying S&P/ASX 200 index         close. The benchmark fell
0.7 percent on Wednesday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         fell 0.1
percent in early trade.
