Australian markets set to open higher on Friday

Australian markets are set to open higher on Friday, when Victoria is off for a public holiday for the footy.

The US version of FairWork has filed a lawsuit against Tesla claiming 'widespread and ongoing racial harassment of its Black employees', while Evergrande's founder is under police watch, stoking fears the Chinese property giant is going to tank.

happy Friday to all that celebrate Emilia here with your final live markets blog for the week. We've got some big international news this morning, with the US version of FairWork alleging Tesla's conduct of 'tolerating widespread and ongoing racial harassment of its Black employees'. The company's stock has been instrumental in boosting the Nasdaq's tech rebound. Wall Street was up yesterday, meaning Australian shares will likely follow today. We have a slither of relief for anybody who has been watching the soaring price of petrol at the pump, with the price of brent crude slightly down. Can it still reach $US100 per barrel? Where are we sitting at 7:15am AEST?
