Australia: Shares recover, NZ stocks jump to 2-month highs

The S&P/ASX 200 index rose 0.6 per cent to 5,230 at the close of trade, pulling away from a one-week trough of 5,164.2 plumbed on Wednesday.
New Zealand's benchmark NZX 50 index rallied 0.8 per cent or 48.58 points to finish the session at 5,775.7, its highest in two months.
