YESTERDAY’S WINNERS

Truscott Mining Corp (ASX:TRM) ended up as the intraday winner, after ripping higher by more than 70% on no news.

The sharp move higher saw TRM get a speeding ticket from the ASX but the junior gold explorer, which has operations in Tennant Creek, NT, said it wasn’t aware of any information that would have prompted the gain.

eCargo Holdings (ASX:ECG), a company that links global brands with Chinese buyers, also joined the winner’s list with a 25% gain after announcing its JJX digital marketplace.

Via JJX, eCargo said it will connect Fonterra’s Australian Dairies brand to 4,000 points-of-sale across mainland China.
