Telstra shares soared 4 per cent to A$3.86 following broker upgrades from Credit Suisse and Macquarie.

CURRENCY NEWS: The Australian dollar, sensitive to shifts in broader risk appetite, eased against greenback, following President Trump's signing of a Hong Kong bill, which could create tension on the trade front, and weaker than expected September quarter private sector capex/business investment. The Australian dollar changed hands at $0.6765 after declining from levels above $0.678 yesterday.
