 Aug 16 (Reuters) - Australian shares are set to drop at the
open on Thursday as escalating global trade tensions and
tumbling commodity and oil prices turn investors risk-averse. The local share price index futures fell 0.8
percent, or 53 points, an 88-point discount to the underlying
S&P/ASX 200 index close. The benchmark rose half a
percent on Wednesday. New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index fell 0.2
percent in early trade. (Reporting by Nikhil Kurian Nainan in Bengaluru
