SYDNEY: New Zealand stocks opened a touch higher on Friday, while their Australian counterparts are looking at a similarly subdued start following an unimpressive session on Wall Street and a mixed performance in commodities markets.
New Zealand’s benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index crept up 0.1 percent, or 6.1 points, to 6,954.0 in early trade.
Australia’s share price index futures inched up 0.1 percent, or 5.0 points, to 5,398.0, a mere 10-point premium to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index. The benchmark is up 0.7 percent so far this week.
