Australia shares to open higher; NZ inches up

    Feb 8 (Reuters) - Australian shares are set to open slightly
higher on Thursday, extending their recovery into a second
session as investors grappled with a global exodus from
equities. 
    The local share price index futures          rose 28 points
to 5,818.0, a 58.8-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200
index         close. The benchmark rose 0.8 percent on
Wednesday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose
slightly in early trade.
