The Australian share market has pulled itself off the canvas and finished slightly higher after a choppy day's trading and despite the US futures markets looking ominous.

The benchmark S&P/ASX200 index was up 1.1 points, or 0.02 per cent, at 5665.2 points at 1615 AEDT on Friday, while the broader All Ordinaries was up 0.1 point.

The Australian dollar has been hammered as risk sentiment took a knock following steep losses in US stock futures and weakness in the Chinese yuan, with it buying 70.33 US from 70.74 US cents on Thursday.
