Australia shares poised to open lower on U.S. stimulus, COVID-19 vaccine delay

    Oct 14 (Reuters) - Australian shares are expected to decline
on Wednesday as the mood soured after a United States fiscal
stimulus package faced another hurdle and a major drugmaker
halted its COVID-19 vaccine trial.
    The local share price index futures          fell 0.9%, a
47.7-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close, as at 2035 GMT. The benchmark closed up about 1% on
Tuesday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose 0.05%
in early trade.
