Aust stocks close slightly higher

Local market edges into the black, boosted by gains in the major miners.

The Australian sharemarket closed slightly higher today, finishing just above the 5,400 threshold as investors lacked catalysts to push the index any further into the black.

At the 4.15pm (AEDT) official market close, the benchmark S&P/ASX200 index rose 14.1 points, or 0.26%, to 5,403.3 points, while the broader All Ordinaries index added 13.9 points, or 0.26%, to 5,408.8 points.
