On Stockhead today, the ASX robotics stocks counting on the rise of the machines, a huge fortnight for ASX IPOs, and Aussie miners finding paydirt in Canada.

But first…

The day ahead

Key data in Australia will be led by inflation data for the September quarter.

The median forecast is for a quarterly rise in inflation growth to 1.6 per cent, following the biggest fall in record in Q2.

“More broadly there is very little inflationary pressure, as consumption growth is narrowly focused,” Westpac said.

The following companies are in trading halts and are expected to exit in the next 24 hours:

Wednesday:

Clinuvel Pharmaceutivals (ASX:CUV) – regulatory decision on SCENESSE
Dampier Gold (ASX:DAU) – exploration results
K2fly (ASX:K2F) – acquisition
E2 Metals (ASX:E2M) – drilling results
Protean Energy (ASX:POW) – capital raising
Trimantium GrowthOps (ASX:TGO) – ASX delisting
Openlearning (ASX:OLL) – capital raising
