 July 12 (Reuters) - Australian shares look to start lower on
Thursday, mirroring turmoil in global equity markets spurred by
prospects of a Sino-U.S. trade war. Australian commodity stocks might bear the brunt of the fall
as oil and base metal prices also slumped after Washington
threatened to impose tariffs on an additional $200 billion worth
of Chinese goods. The local share price index futures fell 0.1
percent or 8 points, to 6,166. The benchmark lost 0.7
percent on Wednesday. New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index was 0.2
percent or 14.65 points lower to 8,986.74 at 1009 GMT. (Reporting by Devika Syamnath in Bengaluru
