Stockhead’s Top 10 at 10, published at 10.15am each trading day, highlights the best (and worst) performing ASX small caps in morning trade using live data.

It’s a short, sharp update to help frame the trading day by showing the biggest movers in percentage terms.

The market opens at 10am (eastern time) and the data is taken at 10:15am, once every ASX stock has commenced trading.

Stocks highlighted in yellow have made market-moving announcements (click headings to sort).


One gainer without news was uranium explorer and developer NexGen Energy (ASX:NXG).

This firm only listed in early July but was already listed in Canada (on Toronto’s TSX) and has a project in the Saskatchewan region – the Rook I project.

Another was Falcon Metals (ASX:FAL) which is a spin off of Chalice Mining’s (ASX:CHN) non-Julimar gold assets. Its shares have mostly traded below its IPO price today but it has been recovering ever since.


Alderan Resources (ASX:AL8) fell after an exploration update on its Detriot gold project in Utah. While the company told shareholders it was changing its focus to a couple of new prospects after lower gold grades at previous prospects.
