Aust stocks open at near six-year high

Local market hits highest point since June 2008 despite weak US leads.

The Australian sharemarket notched up a fresh near six-year high at the open, despite Wall Street closing lower following a broad sell-off of tech stocks.

At the 10.15am (AEST) official market open, the benchmark S&P/ASX200 index rose 15.9 points, or 0.29%, at 5,533.7 points, while the broader All Ordinaries index also gained 15.9 points, or 0.29%, to 5,518.7 points.
