Australia shares set to edge up at open, NZ slips

    Feb 12 (Reuters) - Australian shares are likely to open
marginally higher on Wednesday as investors draw relief from a
rebound in commodities prices and news the coronavirus outbreak
may be over by April.
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.1%, a
55.3-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close. The benchmark rose 0.6% on Tuesday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         fell about
0.1% in early trade, ahead of the central bank's cash rate
decision later in the day.
