Australian shares set to strengthen, New Zealand rises

    Nov 16 (Reuters) - Australian shares are likely to track
their Wall Street peers higher on Friday after reports of
possible leeway in the Sino-U.S. trade standoff helped risk
appetite.
    The local share price index futures          rose 15 points
to 5,762.0, a 26-point premium to the underlying S&P/ASX 200
index         close, which ended relatively flat on Thursday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose around
0.2 percent in early trade.
