All Ordinaries looks to open higher

Also supporting Australian equities today is a stronger gold price, which hit a 3-1/2-week high of $1,616.36 an ounce on Friday.


U.S. stocks gain

U.S. stocks rose on Friday in spite of the banking crisis in Cyprus, paring the second weekly drop of the year for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, as Nike Inc. (NKE) and Tiffany & Co. (TIF) beat earnings estimates and optimism.

The S&P 500 (SPX) advanced 0.7 percent to 1,556.89 in New York, trimming its weekly loss to 0.2 percent.
