Australia shares set to open higher on Sino-U.S. trade talk optimism

    Sept 26 (Reuters) - Australian shares are poised to open

could happen sooner than expected.

8.2-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close. The benchmark fell 0.6% on Wednesday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose 0.4%
in early trade.
