Australia shares set to open higher; NZ flat

    Oct 14 (Reuters) - Australian shares are poised to rise on
Thursday, likely helped by gains in domestic gold and technology
stocks on the back of firm bullion prices and Wall Street ending
higher overnight led by gains in big growth stocks and
tech-heavy Nasdaq.
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.7%, a
9.5-point premium to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close. The benchmark dipped 0.1% on Wednesday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose 0.1%
to 13,044.2 in early trade.
