Australia shares set to open higher, NZ rises

    June 30 (Reuters) - Australian shares are poised to open
higher on Wednesday, taking cues from a strong overnight session
on Wall Street, as gains made in heavyweight technology firms
propelled the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq higher.
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.5%, a
48.2-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close. The benchmark closed marginally lower on Tuesday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose 0.1%
in early trading.
