Aust stocks open stronger

Local market pushes higher in early trade, despite mostly weaker Wall St leads.

The Australian stock market opened higher despite Wall Street closing mostly lower following data showing US consumer confidence fell in September.

The looming deadline for raising the US debt ceiling also weighed on sentiment.

At the 1015 AEST official market open, the benchmark S&P/ASX200 index rose 0.37% to 5,253.8 points, while the broader All Ordinaries index also added 0.37% at 5,249.
