Australian shares set to open flat; NZ down

    Dec 21 (Reuters) - Australian shares are likely to open
little changed on Friday as world equity markets continued a
week-long slide.    
    The local share price index futures          were largely
flat at a 75.8 point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200
index         close. The benchmark hit two-year lows on
Thursday, closing 1.3 percent lower. 
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         fell 0.6
percent in early trade.
