Australia shares dip 0.2 pct on lack of drivers

(Updates to opening levels)
    CANBERRA, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Australian shares edged down
0.2 percent early on Friday, struggling to consolidate their
return above 4,400 points, with the market lacking drivers as
U.S. markets were closed for a holiday.
    The benchmark S&P/ASX 200 index was down 9.5 points
at 4,403.6 by 2316 GMT. It rose 1 percent on Thursday, breaking
above key resistance on positive Chinese manufacturing data.
    New Zealand's benchmark NZX 50 index rose 0.2
percent to 4,005.4 in early trade.
