Australia shares set to open higher, NZ rises

    Feb 16 (Reuters) - Australian shares were set to open higher
on Tuesday, extending gains made in the previous session, as a
jump in copper and oil prices was likely to keep domestic mining
and energy stocks in positive territory.
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.32%, a
41.9-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close. The benchmark added 0.9% on Monday.
    Across the Tasman Sea, New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50
index         rose 0.4% in early trade.
