Australian stocks eye stronger open on trade optimism; NZ up

    Oct 11 (Reuters) - Australian shares were likely to open
stronger on Friday as positive comments from Washington and
Beijing spurred optimism over a possible de-escalation in trade
tensions.  
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.6%, or
42 points, to 6,571.0, a 23.9-point premium to the underlying
S&P/ASX 200 index         close, which ended largely unchanged
on Thursday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose 0.1%
in early trade.
