Aust stocks close little changed

Upbeat Chinese GDP data, hint of early US rate hike not enough to move local investors.

The Australian sharemarket has closed little changed, with investors unmoved by upbeat Chinese growth numbers and the hint of a possible early rate hike in the US if the jobs market continues to strengthen.

At the 4.15pm (AEST) official market close, the benchmark S&P/ASX200 index edged up 7.6 points, or 0.14%, to 5,518.9 points, while the broader All Ordinaries index inched up 8.8 points, or 0.16%, to 5,504.5 points.
