1 thought on “ASX today – wrap up, lockdown blues XJO down as oil tumbles further”

  1. David –
    On HC’s PRe-Open or Morning Thread you generally will post 2 3 or 4 codes as your “watches”, or your recommendations to trade that day, or at least that is how I interpret why you post these codes.
    So would it be possible – for you to do the same thing, as well, by say 9.30am each trading day?,
    on this personal Forum of your own , rather than on HC alone, where no doubt the many of the “masses” probably hinge on such a post from you, after which they then, as you recommend :
    DYOR (Do your own research) either by FA (Financial Analysis) or TA (Technical Analysis).

    I’m a TA from way back (March 1999) – when I first bought! the then excellent charting package called Market Analyser for $10,700!!! from the trading platform Co. now called Bourse Data, which Co. has been supplying fro several years now, the same regularly-updated package – now called Bourse Analyser – for a monthly subscription.

    I have one other request too –
    In your “Welcome” line to “Log-onners” – and presumably every where else on a Forum page would you please change the date format to numerically read : Day Month Year respectively, rather than Month Day Year, as it does now. Tks Col.
    (On HC : The Guatemalan).
