 Oct 16 (Reuters) - Australian shares were set to strengthen
on Wednesday, tracking Wall Street gains on robust U.S.
corporate results and reports that a possible Brexit deal may be
close. However, weak China data could weigh on the country's
export-reliant resource stocks. The local share price index futures were 0.8%
higher, a 31-point premium to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index close. The benchmark finished slightly higher on
Tuesday. New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index rose 0.2%,
or 25.66 points, in early trade. (Reporting by Devika Syamnath in Bengaluru
