Australia shares set to open flat as stimulus boost fades

    March 15 (Reuters) - Australian shares are set to open flat
on Monday, as excitement surrounding further stimulus and a jobs
recovery in the United States fades, and as weaker iron ore
prices likely weigh on miners.
    The local share price index futures          fell 0.04%, a
0.2-point premium to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close. The benchmark rose 0.8% on Friday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose 0.3%
in early trade.
