Australia shares set to open higher as Biden clinches victory; NZ rises

    Nov 9 (Reuters) - Australian shares are poised to inch
higher on Monday as Joe Biden's victory in the U.S. presidential
race after four days of suspense is expected to buoy risk
sentiment, while weakness in the U.S. dollar is likely to boost
miners.
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.2%, an
11.8-point premium to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close. The benchmark ended 0.8% higher at 6,190.20 points on
Friday. 
    In New Zealand, the benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose
0.6% to 12,415.8 in early trade.
